A joy of becoming a Blood Donor

This happened because of I was preparing at that time for my entrance examinations to a magistrates in the Azerbaijan Technical University.

Donorship traditions must be developed without fail

There are some factors indicating an importance of the year 2011 for the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society. The key factor is that the National Society has turned into a donor Society in the year 2011. As a president of the National Society I believe that this result shows visually that the National Society is on the way of development. By turning into a donor Society during the year 2011 the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society has made a change in its history. During this year we not only assisted the vulnerable and needy people in Azerbaijan but also through our support campaigns such as “Support to Somalia”, “Support to Japan” campaigns and “You are not alone” support campaign for victims of the earthquake in Turkey, we provided material and psychological support to those affected by a natural disaster, hunger and poverty in these countries. Of course, since its establishment the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society with its 90 years of glorious history has always provided free of charge medical-social services to the people and assisted with solving of their problems as well as provided aid to those affected by different disasters. During many years these activities have been improved and this work gave its contribution to the development of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. more
