Every year in Ashura, ordinary people donate thousands of liters of blood to the Central Blood Bank. But what happens to the blood taken free of charge from the population for the sake of Allah, Imam Hussein - is this blood sold to patients, like others, or the blood collected free of charge is transferred to the sick for the sake of Allah, Imam Hussein?

According to the expert, the blood donated by people on Ashura day is also sold to patients in hospitals at different prices. Currently, one-time blood transfusions in public hospitals are sold for 70-100 manats at best, and in some cases for 800-1000 manats.

Therefore, do not trust the Central Blood Bank of Azerbaijan with the blood that you donated for the sake of Imam Hussein, look for other alternatives. For example, you may find patients who need blood and donate their blood on purpose, you may think of other alternatives ...
