People from all around Egypt are heading to the health centers to donate their plasma. The lines are astoundingly long (even longer than that of Krispy Kream) and the atmosphere is just filled with love and care.
So, if you are planning to actually get on that amazing action here are a few tips that you need to know in order to not waste your time and make the best out of the experience:
Donation is made at six centers located across five governorates, and consisting of a total of 99 plasma separation devices.
Those lie in Giza’s Agouza, and the regional blood transfer centers at Cairo’s Salam City and Abaseya, Alexandria, Gharbia’s Tanta, and Menya. Further, 20 other plasma donation centers will be completed this year.
The donor has to be at least 18 years old, and not have donated blood in less than three years. Depending on the donor’s health condition, 250-750 milliliter of plasma gets extracted so as red blood cells are injected back to the body through tubes that are used only once.
Plasma donation can be made every two weeks, and it stimulates the bone marrow to produce new blood cells, as indicated by Nevine al-Nahas, General Supervisor of Plasma Donation Project.
