Early in the morning of 7 October, the halls of the main building of Voronezh State University were filled with music. That was the Blood Donor Day, organized by the Mobile Blood Transfusion Station, and the Kacheli youth group of donors of Voronezh.
Those who took part were then treated to hot tea with biscuits and got branded gifts – bracelets and T-shirts with "Beginner Donor" and "Veteran Donor" inscriptions.
A student of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics Dmitry Balashov told us about the new developments in the project:
– The new thing this year is the introduction of a new queue management system. Thanks to it, the people don't have to wait outside for their turn. Nowadays, in Voronezh, there is a great demand for donor blood, and such campaigns are essential for our city. Students take an active part in the project, and we are always able to reach the maximum threshold. We find new donors and create a database, which we will then be able to use in the future.
