PakDonor – as the name suggests, is an online blood donor facility that aims to centralize blood donors in a manner that the blood seekers can timely get to these blood donors when they are in need.
As soon as someone needs blood, all one needs to do is to search on pakdonor.com or send a quick SMS to a hosted service.
As mentioned in above screenshot – a search was made for seeking blood donors in Islamabad with A+ blood group. system retuned 6 results with three qualified donors and displaying their contact numbers. Other three donors opted not to public their contact information – but you can easily get to them through a web form.
So the whole process is simple and smooth.
PakDonor is meant to be a social service platform that will give the commoner free access to blood donor information and in turn, enable him/her to save a life of a loved one.
PakDonor says that their aim is to offer this service to the entire nation, so anyone in need of blood in the country can benefit from the service. They can use the service to find suitable donors as well as advertise blood donation requests to a large audience. The scale of impact will be huge both in terms of geography and value to human life.
PakDonor says that donors’ information is collected through various channels, which is scattered all over the country.
Private medical institutions or pharmacies keep local lists of volunteer which is not easily available to a large audience. So, although the volunteer base across the country is not small, lack of access to these lists reduces the impact.
Currently they are adding up the data, hence a lot of work is pending especially for non-major cities. Meanwhile, if you are donor, or an organization that maintain donor’s list – you can contact pakdonor to contribute for the cause.
This is where PakDonor comes into play to centralize these islands of data and providing a healthy repository of volunteers that anyone in the country can leverage.
Just to mention, PakDonor is operated by Pak eVentures, same company that’s running PakWheels.com.
