Sankalp India Foundation, in association with Comprehensive Trauma Consortium (CTC), has launched “CTC Disha: The State Wide Helpline for Blood”. In Karnataka, anyone looking for blood in time of an emergency can call 94800 44444 for help.
CTC Disha for Bangalore, launched in September 2006, enables people to hunt for blood by calling 1062. This helpline receives about fifteen calls daily. Now people in the rest of Karnataka will also benefit from this idea.
“The helpline works by networking the safe and quality blood banks. Daily blood stock information is taken from the blood banks. Any person who is in need of blood can call the helpline at 9480044444. After furnishing the details of the patient and the blood requirement the response center executives guide them to the closest blood bank which has the required blood group. The helpline ensures that the patient is able to locate the closest safe place where blood is available at a single call.”
