This 32 Year-Old Is On His Way To Saving 1 Million Lives by 2020

"SimplyBlood- a platform to save 1 Million Lives by 2020!"


Kiran Verma is a 32 year old with a unique story, and a clear vision. 

He is on his way to building a blood donation app that could save millions of lives. His app, SimplyBlood, has already been used actively in over 80 countries, saving more than 500 lives.

When Kiran was 7 years old, he lost his mother to cancer- something that played deeply on his mind. At a young age Kiran was motivated to do something to impact society in a positive way. 


How blood donation started:

When Kiran was doing his diploma, one of his professors was on dialysis and needed a blood transfusion. Kiran stepped up and donated blood. His professor’s life was saved.

“I was able to see the change that I had on their lives- a family’s life was impacted because I contributed blood when they needed it”


After three months, Kiran went to Red Cross and contributed blood again. Thus began his legacy of starting blood donation camps at college, encouraging fellow students to contribute blood and save lives.

SimplyBlood:

After contributing blood voluntarily, Kiran found out that patients that used his blood had to buy that from the hospitals.  Dismayed, he considered filing an RTI petition. Finally, Kiran realized that the best way to make an impact would be to start his own initiative. 

And thus Simply Blood came to life.

Simply Blood balances demand and supply of blood, so that no blood is wasted. Every drop Is precious and life saving!

Simply Blood is a working virtual blood donation platform that simplifies the process of blood donation and ensures transparency.

How it works:

Kiran put together the data that he collected over the past few years, comprising a database of over 60,000 people.  When a person needs blood, they can request it on the platform. If there are no responses within 2 hours, Kiran manually locates matching donors in a 5-10 km area, and sends the information to the needy. Thus, the person who needs blood directly reaches out to the donor- eliminating middlemen.

A blood donor can also choose to contribute on a particular date- and the app will direct him to the nearest hospital or blood bank.

Why is he fundraising?


Kiran has quit his job to run this initiative- one that is close to his heart. He wants to make it easy to anybody to contribute blood at any time, and save lives!

However, expenses are mounting and Kiran wants to take SimplyBlood to the next level. Expenses are as follows:

Website Development - Rs. 1,00,000 (that includes the backend)
App Development - Rs. 1,50,000 (Android, iOS and Windows)
Hosting and domain renewals - Rs. 50,000
Traveling and Medical Aid to the needy - Rs. 2,00,000

Kiran's endeavour has been recognised by the media:

With your support and help, we have started working on developing the platform. We have made few updates in our platform with your supported amount. Now we are sending blood requests notifications through SMS services which we bought with the funds collected.

We have saved more than 200+ potential lives in last 6 weeks and we are grateful for each contributor for being a saviour to all of them.

We have spent Rs. 20,700 for SMS services which will make sure we are sending notifications through SMS for next few months.
Our website hosting is going to expire on 15 June 2017, so we still need to renew our hosting to run our operations after that. Your support has been a help for us in time of extreme difficulty.

Our founder Kiran Verma was also awarded as "Social Entrepreneur of the Year 2017" in India International CSR Conclave 2017 at PHD Chambers of Commerce, New Delhi on 11th May 2017.
