This morning I had been searching blood donations for my mother's kidney surgery tomorrow. We received surprising news that there might be a lack of blood stock and the family should get prepared to donate blood. Sadly, but true this is an almost common situation here in Indonesia after long holidays even in big hospitals. The problem was that you not only have to match the certain blood type, but also have to qualify certain conditions to be able to give blood.
Me and my sister have the exact same blood type as my mother, but it turned out that my own physical condition didn't allow me to donate blood whereas my sister was on her monthly cycle. So we had to search through other family members. No one near had the perfect match. The ones who did were still under the age of 17.
We finally found three donations from two of my parent's employees and a friend of my sister. I will remember these wonderful persons with gratitude for the rest of my life. My gratitude also goes to all family and friends who responded quickly to our cry for help. The reason I write this post is that today I experienced by myself blood donations help save lives. Please, take your time if you are qualified. I know that someone in need out there will be grateful to you for life.
