|BLOOD DONATION CAMPS
Every 2-seconds, someone in the country is in need of blood. Every year our nation requires about 4 Crore units of blood, out of which only a meager 5 Lakh units of blood are available.
It's not that, people don't want to donate blood. Many, many times it's just that they are not aware of a need. As a result, needy people end up going through a lot of pain. If only, there was a platform where donors and recipients could come together.
Friends2Help.org a non-profit, non-commercial interface was born out of our social commitment and our desire to use the power of the Internet to help common people. We started this mission with the one idea in mind; connecting those with a heart and those who need a life. We aim to become to the single largest congregation of donors across India, thereby helping needy recipients find donors quickly and effortlessly.
EYE DONATION CAMPS
There are millions of people who are blind because of problems affecting the cornea. They can regain good vision by corneal transplantation (so called eye transplant). But the rate of eye donations is far less than the need. Therefore, it is an appeal to everyone to pledge to donate your eyes. One of the most noble deeds one can do.
We have an estimated 4.6 million people with corneal blindness that is curable through corneal transplantation with eyes received by us as donations. Out of this, an estimated 4.6 million are 90% of the people with corneal blindness are below the age of 45 years including some 4.5 million below the tender age of 12 as could be seen from the following chart:
More than 90% of the corneal transplantation is carried out successfully in restoring vision to people with corneal blindness. Including infants born with cloudy cornea, corneal transplantation can make a big difference to the rest of their lives. Your beloved ones thus live and light up the lives of others even after death.
