Developing A Winning Donor Management Solution

Blood Warriors collaborates with REAN Foundation

We are happy to work with the REAN Foundation to automate the process for requesting blood donations. Automation will help our organization reach more donors and patients. We have been able to quickly develop an easy and effective blood donor management platform with technical expertise and domain knowledge of the REAN team. This collaboration is taking us closer to our vision of helping patients manage Thalassemia.

Blood Warriors Team
Organization Background

Blood Warriors is a non-profit organization dedicated to enforcing sustainable policy-level changes to patients suffering from Thalassemia. Our prime aim is to ensure that not a single Thalassemia patient dies from lack of access to medical support or emergency blood supplies.

Blood Bridge is an initiative of Blood Warriors to bridge the gap between blood donors and Thalassemia patients. A total of 1128 registrations and 1012 donations have been made to date.

What is Thalassemia?

Thalassemia occurs when your body produces less hemoglobin than average due to an inherited blood disorder. Red blood cells carry oxygen thanks to hemoglobin. This disorder destroys a large number of blood cells, leading to anemia.
Challenges Faced

One of the biggest challenges that Thalassemia patients face is the need for regular blood transfusions. The disorder becomes extremely difficult to manage when blood donors are required on a regular basis. Some of the major hurdles with Thalassemia include:

  • Late or sudden requests for blood donation.
  • Lack of responsive blood donors.
  • Manual intervention by volunteers for follow-ups.
  • Inability to reach a larger number of patients.
  • Lack of awareness amongst donors about Thalassemia.
  • New donors need to be registered regularly to maintain the pool.

Benefits to the Patients
