Blood cannot be manufactured in factories; it can only come from generous donors. To cater to this demand, Aapka rakt kisi ki zindgi bacha sakta hai was launched on 1st April, 2010 (as a project) with an unparalleled objective of solving the problem of blood shortage in India.
According to WHO data, India faces a shortage of 3 million blood units. This shortage can easily be eliminated if only an additional 2% of India’s youth donates blood. To make this possible, Aapka rakt kisi ki zindgi bacha sakta hai acts as a channel connecting voluntary blood donors with those who need blood. It is a youth-run organization and provides free help and specially works to target the poor and the needy.
Since its inception, the organization has grown a lot in terms of working for this cause. Aapka rakt kisi ki zindgi bacha sakta hai has developed a 360 degree solution to the problem of blood shortage. The model revolves around 4 focal points:
- Ensuring continuous, sufficient blood supply to blood banks through blood donation camps and weekly donations
- Improving awareness by organizing Street Plays, Info-Talks, Competitions
- Helping those in direct need by operating an emergency 24×7 helpline
- Establishing a network of youth across the state to lead the movement
