The third group plasma donation will take place at the Indoor Stadium of Daegu Athletics Center, with volunteers in place to assure a smooth operation. Just like the first and second plasma donation drives, the participants will decline receiving the travel expense assistance of 20,000 to 30,000 won, to lessen the burden on the taxpayers’ money.
A member of Shincheonji Church of Jesus said, “I was glad and grateful to hear on the news (CG Green Cross) that the plasma treatment is being used at the point-of-care situation. It’s the most valuable thing we can do (as people who have recovered from COVID).” He added, “Through our experience of participating in plasma donation, all the members of our congregation have realized that the power to overcome COVID-19 is tolerance, love, and unity. We will put in our utmost effort so that South Korea can overcome COVID-19 through plasma treatment.”
Overseas US members of Shincheonji, in large cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York have been inspired to donate both blood and plasma at their local donation centers. Ali Jua, a Chicago member states, “I hope with the help of both the church and organizations like Movement HQ, we can promote the importance of plasma donations. There is a feeling of joy and peace when you realize you have a chance to contribute something meaningful to society that has potential to save lives.”
