Blood transfusion is a vital treatment approach that saves millions of lives annually. So far, despite some efforts, no successful, alternative transfusion substance, such as a blood substitute, has been discovered. Blood and blood components remain the only available treatment for trauma and surgery patients, as well as those with thalassemia, hemophilia, cancer and anemia. Due to the rising global rate of both advanced and elective surgeries, the need for blood and its components is increasing.
Volunteer donors go to blood banks based on the needs. However the demand is much more than the availability. Hence, non government organizations conduct blood donation camps at regular intervals in different locations. Organizing blood bank with hygiene conditions and temporary storage facilities also a challenge.
To achieve a sufﬁcient blood supply, the mobile blood collection unit can be useful in overcoming current barriers. This mobile blood collecting unit can visit to different locations and collect bloods, create donor records / history, then supply to the nearest blood banks.

Additional Contribution (not matched by The Rotary Foundation)
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
