As per reports, an alumni group of 15 individuals from IIM Indore have been successful in matching nearly 525 needy COVID patients with plasma donors through their project called NeedPlasma. Operational on a volunteer-based model, NeedPlasma started in June 2020 and it has grown to a strength of 500 individuals today.

Founded by Prashant Saini, a student of IPM Batch of 2018, this group takes the help of micro-influencers and motivates COVID recovered people to donate plasma for the benefit of active patients. While the organisation has strengthened its efforts, the lagging count of donors obstructs the process of getting continuous benefits. Therefore, it is repetitively requesting COVID survivors to come forward and donate plasma so that a large number of lives can be saved. If you are somebody who recovered from COVID recently, please get yourself registered here.
