BloodNearby: An app to get and donate blood nearby:
BloodNearby- A platform where you can save someone’s life by donating the blood and in an emergency you can get blood easily as well. A Mobile App for donating Blood to nearby people.
Here is the complete story of this social cause mobile app developed by three Software Engineers from UP, Vishwas Singh, Krishna Mohan Singh, and Vivek Pandey. They have mentioned, how they got the inspiration to develop this kind of mobile app in detail and of course all about of this amazing app Bloodnearby.
We got inspiration for this app from an incident. Once one of my friends needed blood in a different city where he had no friends and family. He shared the blood requirements on WhatsApp and other social media. We tried our best to arrange the blood by calling friends. We managed to save his life but thought that what will happen if there is no family and friends available. And we came up with BloodNearby.
WHY USE BLOOD NEARBY-
1. Get or Donate blood anywhere.
2. In some diseases blood gets changed very frequently like every month, in that case, Blood Nearby will be very helpful to get the Blood Donors because friends & family will not be enough.
3. In some families, there is no eligible person to donate blood (for exp- Family members are very aged)
4. You are helping directly and you know the person you are helping
5. With this small app, you can save many lives
6. You can call the nearby donors directly.
