Resumen conciso: Ayúdenos a presentar esta solución! Proporcione una explicación en 3 o 4 frases cortas.

Mientras lees este texto un paciente puede estar gravemente enfermo. Si vive o muere depende de si hay disponible una unidad de sangre del tipo correcto. India siempre esta enfrentando la escasez de sangre. La gente tiene que correr de un lado a otro para conseguir una unidad de sangre en su propia ciudad u otra ciudad a la que recurren para acceder a un tratamiento. A veces, un paciente se muere por necesidad de sangre. Hay seres inescrupulosos que venden sangre a cambio de dinero. Indianblooddonors.com es una línea de ayuda mediante SMS que conecta a pacientes necesitados con donantes de sangre voluntarios al costo de un simple SMS.

About Project

Solución: cuál es la solución propuesta? Por favor sé específico!

The most innovative part of Indianblooddonors.com are as follows. 1. Patients or Relatives of the Patients are often told to get blood donors in an emegency or replacement blood donors .Many a times a patient goes to other cities for treatement where they dont know anybody whom they can request for a blood donors. Our SMS helpline helps such people. All they have to do is send a simple SMS and they are connected to a Voluntory Blood Donor in their city in seconds. 2. Many Blood Banks / Hospitals in the country sell blood at a premium. If the Patient cannot arrange a donor , he has to pay what the Hospitals/blood banks charge them. Rates Vary from Rs 15,000 to Rs 3000/-. This causes a lot of problems for poor patients. Our helpline helps such patient where they get a unit of blood at the cost of a standard SMS, thus saving a lot of money. 3. Initially when we started Indianblooddonors.com it was a web based helpline where people could log on to the website and search for blood donors. A few years down the line we realised that we were not accessable by the common man. As they did not know how the use the internet , also it is very difficult to search for an internet cafe in an emergency. That is when we decided to SMS enable our helpline. As mobile phone are used by everybody.

This Doctor has killed my wife !

It was the month of September 1994, my grandmother had a fall and went into coma. She was admitted into Indira Gandhi Medical College, Nagpur. One day at about 3.30 in the early morning, there was a huge commotion in the female ward. Relatives of a patient were bashing up the resident doctor in the ward. On enquiring from one of them he told me "he has killed my wife". I asked the doctor as to what had happened. He told me that he had asked the patients relatives to arrange for 2 units of blood as the lady's Heamoglobin count was very low. They could not arrange for donors and hence the transfusion could not be done and the patient passed away due to a cardiac arrest. This incident left a huge impact on me.

Fast Forward 1999. A welder working at my friends workshop needed O-ve Blood. The friend asked me if i could not help. I enquired from about 4-5 blood banks in our city and could not find a donor. The welder Passed away after 2 days.This incident got me thinking as to what must be happening to patients who go from one city to another city for treatment, where they have no one to help them. What must be happening to patients who suffer from cancer and need a lot of blood transfusion.What must be happening to children who suffer from sickle cell and thallesemia and who need frequent blood transfusions every month.

I told my wife that we had to do something about this. A solution has to be found to solve this problem. But how it could be done we did not know. We resolved that we would surely do something.

We have about 45000 Blood Donors registered on our helpline. We have connected 14,500 blood donors with patients needs blood transfusion since February 2009 (Since our SMS helpline started). The success can be measured that it is growing by word by mouth publicity in Hospitals. One patient tells another patient how to send an SMS and get a blood donor. This itself is proff of its success. People who do not know english are using our helpline by sending an SMS.
