RESOLVED: Thanks for the help, everyone!

 

Good afternoon,

If you have this blood type and you are prepared to function as a donor (or someone knows who is prepared to do so), gladly get in touch with the embassy as soon as possible.

Question regarding donating blood.

 

I have tried donating blood in the States, and the

Red Cross told me that I could not donate blood due to

the fact that I have lived in the Philippines for so long.

 

An American friend of mine has tried donating blood here

in Cebu, and they would not let him donate blood due to

the fact that he is a foreigner and not a Filipino.

 

I do not want to discourage anyone from donating blood, it is

that I have received conflicting information.

 

Anyone know what is correct and what is not ?

 

Thanks.

Hello,

I think if someone donates blood ,the blood that was being donated will undergo some series of test before finally using it,there are so many reasons why and i am sure you guys knows what were those reasons.

Now if being a good samaritan will makes us looks like a big "S", inspite of the fact that it is an emergency then i think i better not do anything.

And if its okey with you,can you please tell me what was the HOSPITALS NAME,that you friend supposed to doante a blood and was bieng denied because he is an AMERICAN.If you can ,then i think it will be a very big issue then..

I dont experience things like those in my services that i rendered freely and wholeheartily.

POC, it was a few years ago that my American friend was in Cebu on

vacation and tried donating blood. I do not remember which hospital he tried

to donate. I can email him and ask.

 

My being denied donating blood in the States was due to having lived

in a foreign country for so long, it was not just the Philippines, there

was a long list of countries that were on the denial list. Please do not

think it was discrimination against the Philippines. There were many

countries that I could have lived in that they said were not eligible

to donate at that time.

HI,

No worries in here,i cannot think and did not think that as DISCRIMINATION,my point was,they were being unreasonable,when in fact before blood transfusion,it will undergo test.I just dont see the logic in it,especially during emergencies.

 

:lol: IM COOL!

I donated blood a little while back for someone who needed AB Positive. I believe it took an hour or two, to make sure I was an acceptable donor by the doctor, as well as having the blood tests done. The following day, I arrived to make the actual donation. This only took about 10 to 15 minutes, total.

 

Pearl, the number of the Dutch Embassy is all the information that I currently have.

Well, I don't know if the person has to be white, black, red, yellow, brown, orange, or green. As long as they can help, I hope they will.

Subject: [sOS_Philippines] Re: Dutch embassy needs urgent donor for bloodgroup O negatief -- UPDATE!

 

Three of us were able to donate for this patient in Manila this morning, which will be sufficient for him to have the surgery he needs. As of now, the problem seems to be solved, but of course if more help is needed I will update again. Apparently this was a fairly serious emergency, so I'm personally glad to have been able to help.

Mrs. Dietvorst (the patient's wife) would like me to extend her gratitude and best wishes to everyone who helped spread the word.

This was my reply to Ben's post on SOS_Philippines:

 

Thank you, Ben, and the others who donated, truly. I will forward this on to the other Groups, of which I am a member.
