The colour of blood

May 06,2014 - Last updated at May 06,2014

Recently, I received an urgent message from someone I don’t know with the request to donate blood.

No problem, done it before and will do it again.

However, my blood was refused because I’m not a Jordanian citizen! 

Blood does not know religion or nationality, just the colour red.

This rule is outdated and discriminatory, and puts life at risk instead of the other way around.
