Why Rare Blood Types : Arranging rare blood types donor ( rh negative rare blood types ) is always a tough task as awareness on rare blood types is still low and usually getting started on the search for rare blood types draws a blank with most people.
Hundreds of blood units are required for patients suffering from blood diseases like Anaemia, accidental blood loss, excessive destruction of Red Blood Cells, Thalassemia, Haemophilia, Leukemia and bone marrow transplant. There is an acute shortage of safe blood and statistics from most blood banks suggest rare blood groups are very scarce.
Delhi, Capital of India contributes only 24 per cent to the total voluntary blood donation and situation is more worse in other parts of the country . The annual collection of blood in India is only 5.5- 6 million units against the requirement of about 8.5 million units.
We try to help serious patients in search of blood donors or rare blood groups by spreading the word around through our volunteers, facebook group and twitter.
