    Dear Friends,

    Please reply, if you know about any international blood donation network where one can donate blood anywhere around the world, and also from where a person in need can get the blood IN TIME.

    As you may be aware of that, for receiving blood (in India), equal amount should be donated too. No one can just come over and sell their blood. Is it possible that one donates blood from canada, and the receiver gets equal amount in India?

    Thanks for your time.

    Regards, Arvind Pal Singh

    Dear Arvind ji

    Blood Transfusion is medical decision made by doctor
    In case its life saving there is no rule in anywhere in World that you have to give before you take in such situation .

    BUt if its not life saving then such rules apply But anyway Still as far as I am concerned I dont think Blood is not Available easily in India

    But Mind you Blood transfusion has many many hazards that usually many peopel dont know
    so fron DR point of view it should be avioded as far as possible but obviously in life saving condition it cant be ( obviously)

    About any such organisation I dont know any but yes Red Cross in India Organizises Blood donation camp and regular donores do get get priorty if they themselves need blood .



    Thanks

    JAtinder Singh

    Thanks Dr. Sahib. I have a situation for repeated blood transfusion. Of course, Doctors have made that decision in the past due to low Hb count. SO I am not exactly sure if this is a life saving effort or not! however, from repeated transfusions, it seems to be.

    I was looking for an option by which one could donate from other countries, and that can be utilized by different countries. So is Red Cross is the only one, or there are more organizations like that? If you come across more information regarding this, please update.

    Thanks a lot.

    Regards, Arvind.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
