TENEX Hosted Traditional Blood Donation Event
On October 9, a regular voluntary blood donation event was organized by TENEX. For the 8th time in a row, such event was held with the use of the mobile blood transfusion station of the A. N. Bakulev National Medical Research Center of Cardiovascular Surgery, which is one of the world’s major cardiosurgery centers.
Each year, the blood donation event attracts more participants. This time, 83 people took part as donors; over 40 liters of whole blood were prepared for the first time. The initiative is carried out with involvement of the employees of ROSATOM and its enterprises, as well as the ones of other companies, partners of TENEX in the field of CSR.
“I have been participating in our blood donation events for over five years now,” says Elena Voskresenskaya, Head of Personnel Performance and Organizational Development Section at TENEX. “I am convinced that for us it is not just an opportunity of helping people, it is also a chance to do good together, as a team. Our traditional collaborative act has long time ago become the base for our corporate culture, uniting empathic people.”
The blood donation events have been held starting from 2012, already having helped save lives and health of several hundred patients of Dmitry Rogachev National research Center of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Immunology, S. P. Botkin City Clinical Hospital, City Clinical Hospital №52, and A. N. Bakulev Research Center of Cardiovascular Surgery.
Within the event, funds were raised in favor of the children taken care of by the “Podari Zhizn” (Gift of Life) charity foundation. The collected sum will be directed for purchase of high-priced medicine for the sixteen-year-old Sofia Lazaridi treated in the Morozov Children’s Hospital of Moscow from acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
