24-year-old Raghav Baldwa who runs a Facebook page names Blood Sure to help patients and their families. He designed this page to help solve the problem by coming up with a channel that would make it easier for people to arrange for blood.

Raghav, a resident of Indore, was in college when he noticed how big a problem it is for many to arrange blood at the right time.

Many blood banks charge fees as high as Rs. 3,500 per pint of blood. However,this is not affordable for patients from low-income backgrounds.

He started by motivating people to donate blood, gathering data of frequent blood donors, putting up requests from people looking for donors on social media platforms, asking his friends to share their blood groups and phone numbers so he could call when needed, etc.

This was in September 2012. Today, his Facebook page has been renamed to Blood Sure and he has helped over 14,000 people across the country.

Blood Sure – On a mission to eradicate blood shortage from India.

A platform where patients and their families can connect to the right donor. Helping people in blood donation emergencies.

However, Raghav does not stop with just posting updates. He maintains a database of blood donors including his friends and calls or asks them to donate blood in case of emergencies. Besides this, Raghav also organizes blood donation camps in colleges, hospitals and offices to help poor people with blood whenever needed.
