WHO estimates that blood donations by 1 percent of a country’s population can help meet its basic requirements for blood (Source: WHO’s “Towards 100% Voluntary Blood Donation: A Global Framework for Action”[1]). However, India falls short by 3 million units annually; this could be addressed if 2 percent more Indians donated blood[2].

SABIC, in collaboration with BloodConnect, has organized a month-long blood donation drive to encourage young professionals and community members in Delhi NCR to participate in this worthy cause.

From March 22, donors can visit blood donation buses at various locations around Delhi NCR, while on March 24, they can donate blood at an air-conditioned camp at Ambience Island, Corporate Towers II and on March 25 at a camp in Ambience Mall, Gurgaon.

BloodConnect is a youth run NGO, which works to tackle the problem of blood shortage in the country. An establishment in 2010, BloodConnect is of a belief that youth combined together can alone solve the problem of blood in India. Having worked with 50 colleges across 20 cities, BloodConnect ensures that the youth puts up a united front and can become a stakeholder in the process.
