Potential donors are ready to get enlisted
Thanks to the aid we got through GlobalGiving we are now able to increase the number of marrow donors in the Karelian Registry by 21 people. This is not many, but this adds hope to the dealy ill patients we care about.
So far, two donor draft actions have been carried out: one in St. Petersburg and one in Petrozavodsk. We were happy to see that many young people are eager to be listed as marrow donors. In fact, there are more volunteers than we can type: typing is most expensive part of our job, and the funding we obtained during the September campaign at GlobalGiving was enough to draft only 21 donors.
We are looking forward to attract more funding through GlobalGiving, increase the donor list and thus reach our main goal -- add hope to the leukemia patients, who are waiting for their donors!
