New ‘Blood Banking App' by Indian Red Cross Society to tackle blood shortage in India #RedCrossDay

India has a recorded shortage of 3 million units of blood, and every two seconds, someone needs blood. Moreover, blood banks rely heavily on replacement donors due to the lack of required numbers of voluntary donors to maintain stock. The app caters to billions of people who face difficulties looking out for blood donors during an emergency medical situation.
The app will initially be tested in India and will be rolled out in the rest of the world. The app will is on both iOS and Android platforms and users will be able to make appointments through the app round the clock.
