Credihealth Organizes Blood Donation Camp as a Part of Credi Blood Donors Campaign


June 18, 2014 - New Delhi, Delhi, India

Credihealth, the leading online healthcare information services provider (http://www.credihealth.com/), organized a Blood Donation Camp on the occasion of World Blood Donation Day as a part of their Credi Blood Donors campaign. The World Blood Donor Day, sanctioned by World Health Organization, is held every year on June 14 to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products, and to thank blood donors for their voluntary blood donation. The day also coincides with the birthday of Nobel Laureate Karl Landsteiner (born: 14 June, 1868), a noted Austrian biologist and physician, who was the father of the current system of ABO Blood Grouping.
 
Credihealth has launched a platform “Credi Blood Donors” where healthy enthusiastic individuals can register to donate blood. The users are required to fill in the details given on the Credihealth blog and get registered as donor. Hospitals, clinics or people can notify Credihealth of their blood needs, following which Credihealth will contact its Credi donors. According to District Aids Prevention Control Unit (DAPCU), more than 55% people desist from blood donation camps owing to wrong notions like possibility of weakness or HIV, etc. Credihealth has started the campaign to get rid of such notions and is targeting people from the 18-50 years of age group. The company aims to be the go-to destination for credible information and feedback on healthcare with an association with top doctors and hospitals.
 
Every year India requires millions of units of blood, and there is a huge shortage. Having sufficient quantities of this valuable resource can save many lives – of road accident victims and trauma patients, patients suffering from dengue, treat thalassemia, and support patients undergoing major surgeries and complicated pregnancy cases. Credihealth and Select City Walk, Saket in association with Rotary Blood Bank New Delhi joined hands to make more people aware of how blood donation has a positive impact on improving the overall well-being of the Indian Society.
 
Commenting on the campaign, Mr. Ravi Virmani, Co-Founder, Credihealth India, said, “Our research statistics tell us that every day India requires 38,000 blood units and unfortunately, we do not have adequate blood units’ supply to fulfil this requirement. Hence Credihealth organized a Blood Donation Camp in partnership with Rotary Blood Bank, and Select Citywalk Mall as the venue partner on the occasion of World Blood Donor Day on Saturday, 14th June 2014. Credihealth has taken this initiative to spread awareness regarding the benefits of blood donation and spread the message that it is a completely safe procedure.”
 
On the occasion Mrs. Sonu Singh, Manager, Motivation and Camp Operations, Rotary Blood Bank said, “The World Blood Donor Day, sanctioned by World Health Organization, is held every year on June 14 to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products, and to thank blood donors for their voluntary blood donation. For the blood donation camp organized by Credihealth in partnership with Rotary Blood Bank we were able to get more than 100 units were donated by enthusiastic youth till late evening.  The aim was to generate awareness and to motivate citizens to donate blood voluntarily, so that the shortage is overcome.  Regular, Voluntary Blood Donors are the single most important source of blood as they have fewer blood borne infections amongst them.”
