Donate with blood ?
Today at 5:30 am , one of my friends called me , whom i didn't have much contact with in the last year, and i was stunned that she is calling me at 5:30 am. whe i answered , she told me whether i know someone with blood group O negative as her aunt is bleeding for three hours now and they can't find her blood group. I didn't know and it was too early to call any to ask , so i told her to go to some blood banks that are well known in Cairo, she replied that they already asked in all those banks and they couldn't find because it is a very rare group.
I couldn't realize how come that the hospital that her aunt is taking her med care doesn't have bood reserves for all the groups, and how come all the banks i mentioned dont have any of this blood group. what if (and it is )an indeed emergency ..a surgery or what so ever!
I opened a medical care hospitals guide and i strated to call them and all advised me that there is n't any of this group and they mentioned me these banks that my friend already contacted them before.
STILL can't realize that ! Whenever I hear about donating for blood , i feel careless towards donating because i know that there are many who does that and there are many blood banks and it is not the severe volunteer action because there are so many who does that already .. till today.
I realized how important it is and how much it is appreciatable that someone whould donate with his/her blood in this sitaution. And how sometimes underestimated actions can save peoples' lives even if we dont realize how great is this action or underestimate it in compare to other volunteer and charity activities.
NOTHING to be underestimated. We can never know with whom we can help with this simple action.
