Social Service Online

Blood donation - Social service - 45K donors online.

In a unique way to collect the blood donors as per city and requirement, here is a successful attempt done in India.

All that Khushroo Poacha needed to set up an e-social service website, was a second hand computer and some hard-earned funds in March 2000. Seven years later, the website now has 45,000 donors registered from all over the country and can get blood donated to a needy patient in any part of the country in less than 30 minutes.
“There is always a shortage of blood. Many a times, surgeries have been held up as there is shortage of negative (rare) blood groups,” said the Nagpur-based Poacha.
