Mr. Jabbar said “The campaign is focused on helping corona positive patients who are undergoing treatment at different hospitals by connecting them with COVID recovered patients who have generated antibodies after successful treatment.”

“Many of the recovered patients are willing to come forward to donate their plasma to save lives of affected patients. Someone or their relatives or friends in almost every family is affected by COVID. Plasma Donation can be effective in their recovery,” he added.

The initiative is a part of forum’s efforts to help blood banks restock blood units for emergency use during the pandemic. The forum has collaborated with different NGOs, and NTR Blood bank, including seeking support from the City Police and GHMC for the successful execution of the campaign.
