On September 17, fourteen of our colleagues took part in a blood donation campaign to help children with thalassemia in the framework of the “Care for children suffering from haemophilia and thalassemia” State Program. Upon the initiative of the “Azerikimya” Production Union, this voluntary humanitarian campaign has become annual since 2010. This year, this event of vital significance to thousands of diseased people was dedicated to the Oilmen’s professional holiday and 70th anniversary of Sumgayit city. The blood donation campaign was actively supported by the employees of SOCAR’s subsidiary companies and organizations, by a group of employees of the “Kimyachi” Culture Palace, and by members of city community. A total of about 200 people donated blood.
