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

Turn to Love is a partnership of Muslim organisations working with NHSBT to address an urgent appeal for people from the BAME community who have had coronavirus to donate plasma, this may help people who are still ill.
