She needs blood donations so if anyone is able to donate blood for her , please call Medical Partners of Belize and say that you would like to donate blood for Annie Rivero. You may also be able to do it through your private physician on the island. I am not sure. But it is a desperate medical situation and she needs multiple transfusions.

I am fairly sure that you cannot donate blood in San Pedro. You would need to go to Central Blood Bank in Belize City personally.It is adjacent to Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital. You just tell them there who the blood is for. It is no matter what your type is they will accept it and exchange it if necessary for Annie's type.

I was told to call Belize Health care partners at 223 7870 and they will arrange it but I could be wrong about that. Maybe they would just send you where Natalie recommends going. I would follow her advice because she knows more that I do about proper avenues of care.

Belize Health Care will most likely instruct folks to go to the blood bank. The bank has to screen the blood and then it is the place that stores and distributes blood.

I wish I could help but I can't donate blood.

Can you rally your university students to donate? Do a quick blood drive. I will be happy to pay for the taxi, cookies and orange juice if you can get some young folks that are willing.

One of my friends ran into this situation in Chetumal and she ended up running around in a taxi picking up bums off the street and taking them to the blood bank to donate in exchange for cash.

I'm not saying that is an ideal way to go about this - but desperate times call for desperate measures.

There are so many people that can't donate blood - because of malaria and other tropic diseases, anemia, blood pressure issues etc. etc

Our thoughts and prayers will be with Annie and the family at this time.

Perhaps Belize Health Care wants to be kept informed of the number of donors. A call to them would probably be wise.

I will ask at the University, Amanda. But please to all of you who are able, please consider a trip to the blood bank. I cannot give blood either because of a history of Lyme's disease but I will pay for taxi's etc as well.

I have talked to Dr. Lerida about getting some method on the island for donating. I have a very rare blood type and would be happy to donate for someone who needs that specific type of blood. Even the collection bags would be good because if the local docs knew who has what blood type, they could collect it immediately here in the event an accident would require someone to have blood.

I will call and check but generally, they will not take mine.

We have tried in the past to do it, problem is,if I remember correctly, it still has to go thru Central Blood Bank and they will not OK it for transfusion if they don't personally see that is collected properly and maintained at the correct tempurature. In the past they have agreed to come out to San Pedro to collect blood if we have enough donors, I think it was a minimum of 17.
Perhaps if enough donors could be rounded up they might come here. However that takes time and this sounds like it's urgently needed.

This is rather urgent. But I will call and see how many people we would need.
