We all know about the war in Ukraine. It is useless, inhuman and horrific.
We salute and congratulate all the people who have helped the victims of this war with the necessary resources: transport, accommodation, food, clothing, employment, volunteering of any kind.
The solidarity manifested in the entire world has demonstrated that humanity will always win, and good thoughts will have the ability to overcome any challenge.
But we also know that in Ukraine blood is needed for the wounded. In these extremely difficult moments for the Ukrainian people, we want Romanian blood to reach our neighbors in Ukraine, with whom we are in solidarity in these times.
Beyond that, we want the message that was sent from Romania to reach the entire world and encourage people to donate blood to help victims of the war in Ukraine. Or, why not, to simply donate blood for the first time in their own country, saving the lives of those who need it.
Serhiy Sydorchuk and Florin Cernat. They are the football players that (not by accident) are at the center of this video campaign.
Both of them have proudly represented their countries in international competitions. Sydorchuk is a key player in Ukraine’s national football team. Florin Cernat not only played for the Romanian national team, his debut match was in fact against Ukraine.
Presently, Sydorchuk plays for Dynamo Kyiv, while Florin Cernat wrote history with Dynamo Kyiv. Football lovers will surely remember the match in which Cernat scored the last 2 goals in the historic victory of Dynamo Kyiv over Bayer Leverkusen in the group stage of the Champions League. In Ukraine, both players are highly appreciated for their contribution to society through sport.
In their personal lives, the two are not linked just by a common path in their careers as footballers, but also by a strong friendship, which was amplified by the war. Sydorchuk, along with his wife and three children, left Ukraine and fled to Romania to escape the war, and Cernat immediately came to help.
Not only that, filming for this campaign is taking place only a few days after Serhiy became a father for the fourth time, in Romania, as a refugee. We truly thank him for the fact that, during the current context, he agreed to film this video to promote blood donation for victims of the war in his native country.
Serhiy Sydorchuk and Florin Cernat encourage you to donate blood for the victims of the war!
Remember: blood is vital and it can’t be bought. If you can donate, please do it.
