FARAH CITY (Pajhwok): Some youth in western Farah province launched blood donation drive on the occasion of 10th Muharram-ul-Haram to pay homage to the sacrifices of Imaminfo-icon Hussain (RD) and his companions in Karbala.

The drive was launched on Saturday afternoon at the Civil Hospital in Farah City, the provincial capital in which over 150,000 CC blood was donated.

Haji Ezzatullah, head of the blood donation drive, said mourning was not the only way to commemorate this day but helping the less fortunate people was the best manner to pay homage to the sacrifices of Imam Hussain.

Dr. Abdul Jabbar Shaeq, head of the Public Healthinfo-icon Department, hailed the initiative of youth in Farah and said the blood donation drive was launched to help injured security forces.

Over 3,000 youth in Farah took part in the drive.
