The Big Question

Despite being a country with a population of 1.2 billion, Why are we still facing problems of blood shortage?
 India faces a blood shortage of 3 million units, Given that the eligible donor population of India is more than 512 million, this deficit is surprising. 
Delhi NCR alone faces a shortage of 100,000 units per year.
 

Problems

There are situations which come up at odd times/ odd hours; when we can’t wait for another minute for that ounce of blood to get in the drip.
The question is: is a donor always available? 
The answer is NO.
Unable to store blood for a longer duration due to it’s shorter shelf-life- In the last five years, over 2.8 million precious units of blood and its components were discarded by blood banks across the country. Why? 
Mainly because the shelf-life of donated blood is 35 to 42 days. 
The Bitter Truth: Even with a donation card, the donor has to pay from his own pocket when he requires it. Furthermore, the news that their blood saved someone’s life, never reaches them.
 

ONE PERSON-18 LIVES. 

A single unit of blood can save 3 lives and a person can donate at an interval of 56 days, that implies 6 times a year. Thus 18 lives you can save!
Following the protocol for :
  • Availability of volunteered donors when required
  • Easy reach of volunteered donors, and 
  • no extra charges on volunteered blood, we could fill the empty wells saving our souls.
 How can we implement this?
 

Presenting an app that saves a life 

  1. No wastage of blood.
  2. Transparency with blood usage for volunteered donors.
  3. No charges 
  4. Privacy: Donors don't have to provide their personal details like mobile number on the platform in order to help.
  5. Fast and Effective
  6. Donors get to know their blood test reports each time they donate
 

The Frainz Way

  • Donors can interact with requirement without sharing their mobile numbers.
  • Volunteered blood donors can donate after testing of blood directly to the patient.
