U.S. Ambassador Kyle Scott joined members of the United States Embassy community and Serbian partners and friends to commemorate the 16th anniversary of the tragedy of 11th September 2001.
Following the 9/11 attacks, many Americans responded by looking for a meaningful way to contribute to their community and a huge number did so by donating blood. As blood banks in Serbia historically hold low reserves after the summer months, the U.S. Embassy chose to follow the lead of those first responders and donate blood to the community that has welcomed American citizens. For the 7th year in a row, the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade partnered with the Serbian Red Cross to host a blood drive to honour those who died 16 years ago.
