Tbilisi, Georgia, May 30
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Some 130 employees of the SOCAR Energy Georgia company have taken part in the charity event 'Donate blood - save a life' held at the Tbilisi Blood Transfusion Station on May 30.
The SOCAR Energy Georgia is a subsidiary of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR).
The Director General of the SOCAR Energy Georgia Mahir Mammadov, who also participated in this event, said that the company's employees are taking part in this charity event for the first time.
"It is very important, as the blood donated by us can save someone's life. And what can be better than this?" he stressed.
The importance of citizens' participation in such charity events was emphasized, as Georgia often faces donor blood shortage due to the underdevelopment of the country's donation system.
