Students of LU attempt to tackle medical emergencies using digital assistance.
The brainchild of 6 Lucknow University students, 'Mission Zindagi' is an online blood donors' group that has been launched to provide immediate help to people in need of medical emergencies. The programme aims to create a database of all students and staff who donate blood regularly or are keen on donating blood to help create a virtual blood bank. The digital database of donors will not only help save lives but will also save time, especially during emergencies.
Digital assistance to tackle medical emergencies
Started by 6 BA (Honours) final year students, the 'Mission Zindagi' portal is easily accessible to anyone who wants to register themselves there. The link to the digital database is available on the Lucknow University website and interested donors can be a part of this noble initiative by simply filling-in their details and selecting a suitable time of donation. Besides, the group will also be accessible in case of urgent requirements. The system has been designed in a way, that the closest donor to the patient's location gets alerted for immediate help. Any resident who is in need of blood can reach out to the team members and contact them through the information available on the LU website.
Student volunteers have been tasked to work with this blood donation initiative, round the clock, helping to pick donors from the vast blood bank, at the earliest. The database will include varsity members from PG and UG programmes, encouraging them to participate in the noble cause. 'A pint of hope', this initiative will be a handy tool to help save lives, so follow that tagline and, 'get yourself registered as a blood donor and become a life saviour.
