The lebanese redcross-centers are the only places in which blood can be donated in Lebanon. Hospitals do not have a blood bank from where they can obtain blood of all types, when needed. If someone is in need of a blood transfusion, due to an accident or any sort of incident, friends and family is urged to go to the redcross blood-donation center to donate immediately. The blood is analyzed by a redcross specialist and sent to the hospital as quick as possible. In case of terror attacks, the blood donation center is open around the clock, since the lebanese population is used to donate after fatalities.
