Message from an ex-colleague:
” وَمَنۡ أَحۡيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَآ أَحۡيَا ٱلنَّاس جَمِيعٗاۚ “
And whoever saves one life – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely (Surah AL-Maidah,5:32)
Assalamualikum All, A critical patient who had open heart surgery (Dual Valve Replacement) is in ICU at AFIC Rawalpindi, She needs A+ platelets. Different blood groups will not work as AFIC does not do exchanges for platelets. For Donating platelets the donor has to have A+ Blood group, clear & visible veins & the patient should not have a history of transmissible diseases (Hep a,b,c) or diabetes (taking insulin).
White blood cells or platelets are regenerated every week in the body & only a very small donation is taken from the body. Unlike Red blood donation; platelet donation does not result in the loss of iron, minerals or other fluids from the body. There is absolutely no downside and you are saving a life.
If you have A+ blood group please consider donating to save a patient in critical condition. Contact: 0301- 5553796.
“Allah fulfills the needs of whoever fulfills the needs of a fellow Muslim & Allah will relieve him of one of the burdens of the Day of Judgment” (Al-Bukhari)
Even if you don’t have A+ blood group please forward it to your contacts/ Whatsapp groups and Allah will give you the same Ajar IA
جزاك اللهُ خير
