TsAGI Hosts Blood Donor Day

24 June 2022

‘Donate Blood — Save a Life!’ This was the motto of regular Blood Donor Day held at TsAGI (a part of NRC “Zhukovsky Institute”). The 33rd humanitarian action for blood donation was organized by TsAGI’s HR Sector for Youth Policy.

Traditionally, Blood Donor Days are held jointly with Moscow Regional Blood Transfusion Station—whose field team worked at TsAGI. Over 80 employees from TsAGI’s different departments were involved in the event, gathering totally more than 40,000 ml of donor blood.

‘It is right and quite easy to donate your blood to those who really need it. Any healthy adult can do it. I have been a blood donor for several years, and I do my best not to miss such actions. I think it is only a humanitarian but also a patriotic matter in today’s reality,’ said Andrei Ptitsin, Deputy Chief Engineer at Department for Aircraft Aerodynamics, TsAGI.

Four donor days a year at TsAGI have become a regular occurrence since 2014. More than 2,000 employees have donated over 1,000 liters of blood in the recent years.
