KFU student wins a grant to popularize the donor movement in Crimea
Crimean Federal University student Dmitry Yakushev won a grant of 300 thousand rubles to popularize the donor movement in Crimea. These funds were used to create an identity, compile teaching materials for lectures, and travel to points of interactive meetings.
Our project “Republican Action “#Donor91” won the All-Russian competition of youth projects among educational organizations of higher education, and it, of course, is primarily about donation. But it is also about life, mutual assistance and unity for a common goal — to do a good deed. It exists to mentor potential donors, to help them understand the significance of this act, to guide them from acquaintance with the opportunity to the donation itself. Meetings with students have already been held as part of the project. All that remains is the final step — a visit to the Blood Center. And I think that we were able to charge the guys to decide on this important and responsible step– the press service of the university quotes Dmitry Yakushev.
According to him, the project is being implemented in higher educational institutions of Crimea, as well as in colleges and technical schools. It started in May of this year. During this time, together with the Blood Center and the Crimean Federal University, interactive meetings about donation were held, at which volunteers dispelled myths and shared information about the benefits of donation.
We have already attracted young people to this good cause, and I am sure that in the future more and more young people will be motivated to lead a healthy lifestyle in order to become a donor again. The final stage of our project starts in November, within the framework of which we plan to attract more than a hundred people to donate whole blood and its components.notes Dmitry Yakushev.
The Republican campaign “#Donor91” is a volunteer project aimed at popularizing the donor movement in the Republic of Crimea among young people aged 18 to 35 years, as well as people under the age of 60. It is being implemented by student teams of the Republic of Crimea together with the Crimean Federal University named after V.I. Vernadsky and the State Budgetary Institution of Healthcare of the Republic of Crimea “Blood Center”.
