Ahmedabad: Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia launched a dedicated mobile app for those citizens "who either want to donate or seek blood in emergency".
During the launching ceremony, Togadia, who is also a cancer surgeon, claimed that the app called 'Blood 4 India' "will bridge a gap between donors and seekers of blood across India".
The app is designed and launched under the banner of 'India Health Line'.
"After downloading this App on any smart phone, you can register yourself as a proud blood donor. Similarly, you can also register yourself if you need blood and find the donors through this App," Togadia said.
"Don't wait till emergency. Registering on 'Blood 4 India' helps you to be a good Samaritan. It will also let you know the availability of the blood of your blood group near your area anywhere in India," said Togadia, also the national president of 'India Health Line' which aims at collecting blood for various blood banks all over the country through its annual blood donation drive.
"Blood is life. Donating blood is donating life. Registering on 'Blood 4 India' will give you the greatest 'punya' (good deed) and joy of saving lives," the VHP leader said.
