Donor Day at MGIMO

Donor Day at MGIMO

15 September 2017

September 14th, Blood Donor Day was organized at MGIMO University, as has become an ongoing biannual tradition. The event was organized with the support of the Student Union and gathered over one hundred students and faculty members.

In order to give blood, students have to be over 18 and undergo a medical examination. Each year the number of students, who want to participate in donor day increases, reflecting the growing awareness of the need for all to contribute to saving lives. Students interviewed shared their reasons for giving blood, some mentioning a sense of personal accomplishment at helping those in need, others underlining a serious shortage of blood donors in Russia.

The staff of MGIMO’s medical center and the organizers of the event convey their gratitude to those hundred people who donated blood and showed by their selfless attitude that they care about human life.
