Bangladesh Blood Donors


Bangladesh Blood Donors is Not for Profit initiative taken by HRIDS (Human Rights Information & Development Society), a Non Government Organization (Registered under The Society Registration Act of 1860) working towards facilitating the communication between blood donors and recipients since 2001. Initially the activities of Bangladesh Blood Donors was limited to a dedicated website where voluntary donors could register their contact details for public viewing so that relatives/friends of recipients could browse the database and find a donor in his/her locality. The operation was conducted from a home-based office. Recently the operation has been scaled up to increase the size of the database to cater to the ever-increasing demand for safe blood in Bangladesh.
