Fresh Blood DonationBasically, facilitating fresh blood to the patient is Youth For Blood’s major daily work. When someone is not able to arrange fresh blood for his/her patient even after contacting blood bank; searching among relatives, family and friends, he/she communicate with our volunteer. After registering the details of patients and relative, we get to our online registered donor database, find a donor nearby the concerned place and convince him to donate blood. Finally, we facilitate fresh blood to the patient. And for this service we don’t charge any amount, just expect your moral support and good wishes.
Blood Donation CampYouth For Blood advocates for regular blood donation. Visualizing the need of blood, we communicate and collaborate with different Organizations, Colleges, and Institutions to organize Blood Donation Drives on regular interval. The main purpose behind this advocacy is to make the society free from blood scarcity.
“Sharing Day” is a program that is held on every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. throughout the different branches of YFB. This is our regular program. On every Saturday, Volunteers, well-wishers, Board Members gather in our office of respective places. This is the best way to join YFB. We share our weekly experiences, future plans/programs of YFB, share different information, ideas, skill which are helpful to enhance someone’s personality.

College Awareness ProgramSince 2011, we have been organizing an event entitled “College Awareness Campaign” (CAC). This program is generally focused to educate and aware the youths about the importance of blood donation. This campaign is primarily organized to include the students from +2 and bachelor level. It is mainly a two day event. On first day our volunteers aware the students regarding blood, blood donation and on the other, we organize blood donation camp in the particular college. It has been an effective way to lobby for the increment of blood donors and find new volunteers.
