The head of the non-profit Association of Young Blood Donors, Slavinska says most people don’t understand how vital blood donors are to the health sector, and the Ukrainian government is doing nothing to help.

In fact, patients themselves often have to seek out suitable blood donors themselves, she told the Kyiv Post.

“There’s no unified register of blood donors and donation centers in Ukraine, and there’s no program to popularize and inform citizens about donating blood,” Slavinska said. “People in hospital beds have to look for donors themselves.”
