Cryos International awareness campaign «Some save lives – others give life»


Cryos International, the first independent donor sperm and egg bank, operating in Cyprus since 2018, presented its new campaign with its “Some save lives – others give life” slogan. The campaign aims to generate awareness around the major issue of infertility.

Based on the subject of ‘everyday life heroes’, the new campaigns places attention on the visible and invisible side of individuals, who both contribute to society in their own way. Visibly, anyone can recognize a female doctor, a firefighter or a paramedic. The flip side sheds light on a regular men and women, people next door, who could be egg or sperm donors, and who are helping to deal with the problem of infertility.

For the most of us, the contribution and work of either the doctor or the firefighter is undoubtedly recognizable and honourable. However, there are also silent and unseen heroes walking amongst  us every day, who perhaps do not receive the due recognition that they deserve. By donating either their eggs or sperm, these individuals create new opportunities for those who wish to have their own baby, but due to certain circumstances, cannot. Via egg donation, women – who for various reasons were unable to have their child and were facing fertility problems – can now become mothers.

But why do some people decide to become donors? And why is there prejudice surrounding egg and sperm donation compared to other forms of donations? During the first half of the 20th century, when the first blood donor facilities were established, being a blood donor was often associated with myths that gave rise to many questions. Today, on the contrary, blood donors are perceived as generous people, and we all know that blood donations save many lives every day. The perception of egg donation, and sperm donation for that matter, is moving in the same direction, and is today accepted and acknowledged as an altruistic, kind, and selfless act. Studies have shown that altruism seems to be the greatest reason people donate – whether that is blood, sperm, or egg donation. Furthermore, sperm and egg donors often know somebody who has struggled to have a child and know how much it means to them.

Egg donation in Cyprus has already assisted many couples, both Cypriots and those from abroad, in achieving their dream of having a family. The process of egg donation is generally safe and has no impact on the future potential fertility of the egg donor. Egg donation is legal in Cyprus and has been practiced in the country for over two decades. In accordance with Cyprus law, egg donors have no responsibility or legal rights to children born as a result of their donation. An egg donor in Cyprus can only donate eggs to one family in Cyprus. If there is no desire from the same family for a new member, the rest of the donor’s eggs can be used for families in other countries in the world. This ensures that there is no risk of consanguinity.

Speaking about her experience, the first Cryos egg donor in Cyprus, emphasises:

«The importance of egg donation can motivate any woman to embrace the process. I would urge all women to learn more about egg donation, as at the end of the day, they will feel great pride that they have helped a woman or a family have their own child.»
