The blood donation section of the blood transfusion center is crowded with donors, and more are waiting for their turn to donate blood. Many are newcomers, and some are “veteran” blood donors.
- I have been donating blood for five years already. I remember a case when a pregnant woman underwent a car accident. She and her baby would perish if there were no blood for transfusion.

I continue donating so that to help more people, – says Ergash, 48-year old blood donor.
