Muslim organisations back appeal for plasma donors

A new appeal has been launched by NHS Blood & Transplant (NHSBT) in partnership with Muslim organisations. We are calling for men who've recovered from COVID-19 to register their interest in donating plasma to support research into new treatments for vulnerable patients affected by coronavirus (COVID-19), a programme NHSBT is leading on.

If you've had coronavirus, please consider donating your plasma to help others.

Your plasma and how it helps

The antibodies found in blood plasma might stop the disease from progressing. Men from Black, Asian, Minority and Ethnic (BAME) communities, are more likely to have high levels of antibodies in their blood plasma. That’s why we need you to come forward to donate.

Please sign up to donate if:

  • you are aged 18-65
  • you have had coronavirus – tested positive, have been symptomatic or been hospitalised

Get involved

If you've had coronavirus, you may be able to help others by donating blood plasma.

Whoever saves one life, it is as if he saved all of humanity

 Holy Quran 5:32
