President of the Donner Sang Compter Association Juergie Tirouz, after the Beirut bombing , extended an invitation to "help the wounded and donate blood not only today but throughout the week because we will be in dire need for it in the coming days," according to the Lebanese newspaper, An-Nahar.

A plea published in the Lebanese newspaper "An-Nahar" today said: "A tragedy has befallen us, the hospitals have collapsed before our eyes, the sick and wounded in front of the hospital gates and their courtyards, and blood is everywhere. Our health sector is bleeding, the operating rooms are broken, the medical staff is fighting a war with an enemy that was among us." Before all of us explode and cause a great catastrophe. "


She added: "At this critical moment, we must forget our differences and contradictions, leave everything behind and run to help our loved ones back home, every drop of blood we donate may save the life of a person who was present at the wrong time and place. We live in difficult and harsh times, patients with thousands and martyrs fall by dozens. Every humanitarian initiative may see the wounds that bleed at this hour. Humanitarian calls from hospitals in Beirut and its suburbs, blood donation from all groups, we must be one hand in the face of destruction and death! "

"For everyone who does not have a medical condition or a chronic disease, everyone who is able to invite you today to head to the nearest hospital or blood donation center. By donating you you save the lives of many, the operating rooms are crowded with emergency and critical cases, that is, a minute passes by which we may lose a dear (brother or father) Or a husband or partner ...). "

The assistance is in many ways, "We ask everyone to reach out and help, according to his capabilities and capabilities, to open his house or give from his blood, or remove the effects of destruction in the regions."

"I thank every Lebanese who donated blood and ran to his human brother," he added. "I am looking for something to hold the head up. Everyone rushed to help others and they answered the call."
