Thank you so much for your help. It’s truly humbling the lengths that people will go to to help strangers in need.
It seems like the response we have had over the last 24 hours to our social media and online campaign (plus emailing everyone in our contacts book!) has worked amazingly well, and it currently looks like the hospital has enough blood, which is a huge relief. Some people have been allowed to donate today, but others have been turned away, being told that the hospital has enough blood.
It’s quite a fast-moving situation (yesterday the doctors changed their mind about whether to operate on my friend three times!). We are expecting some more news in the next couple of days as we have another friend going from the UK to be there. Our friend Neil is still in a critical condition but is a little more stable today.
At the moment it’s just Neil’s wife there with him, who understandably doesn’t have informing us of every new detail as her top priority.
When our other friend arrives there she will be giving us much more info on what else we can do from this end. If we need any more blood donations I will perhaps post again in the coming days, but I think for now it seems like we don’t need any more donors.
Thank you again so much for your assistance, it really means a lot to me and everyone involved.
