About Us

Universally, 'Blood' is recognized as the most precious element that sustains life. It saves innumerable lives across the world in a variety of situations. Once in every 2 seconds, someone, somewhere is desperately in need of blood. Despite the increase in the number of donors, blood supply remains short during emergencies, mainly attributed to the lack of information and accessibility. According to the statistics in 2015-2016, it is estimated that India is in need of 1.1 million units (1unit~450ml) or approximately 36 tankers (1truck~11,000L) of blood for medical procedures. Furthermore, according to the analysis, in some areas of India, blood is being wasted because its surplus. This is because blood cannot be stored more than 42 days. Blood cannot be manufactured in factories at the time of need and cannot afford to waste by collecting surplus. Hence, there is a need to create transparency to generous donors when the need for blood arises.

To cater to this demand, Life Share has come up with an objective to address the blood shortage & wastage by creating a transparency between generous donors & recipients. Its unique SMART feature helps to search real time Blood Donors with specific blood group in the nearest location. Life Share also allows to contact the Blood Donors through the inbuilt CALL & CHAT feature. A click on “Emergency” button helps to send the urgent necessity of a specific blood group to all the nearest Life Share members. Establishing a direct connection with the Blood Donors through LifeShare will help to provide a timely blood transfusion which is the key factor in saving a life.

We positively believe our Life Share App can overcome most of the challenges related to blood availability and blood wastage by effectively connecting the blood donors with the blood recipients.

FAQs

Blood is red colored fluid flowing continuously in our body's circulatory system. About 7% of the body weight of a healthy individual is blood. On an average there are about 5-6 liters of blood in human body.
Blood mainly contains a fluid called plasma in which are suspended cellular elements. Three types of cells - Red Blood Cells or RBC's, White Blood Cells or WBC's and tiny platelets form the cellular element.
Hemoglobin is a substance present in the red cells. It is helpful in carrying oxygen and carbon dioxide. On an average, in a healthy male it should be between 14 - 16 gm % and in a female it should be about 12 - 14 gm %. This is also being daily synthesized to replace the old stock.
For all practical and routine purposes, it is ideal to transfuse to the patient with his own blood group. ‘O’ group is considered as universal donor and ‘AB’ groups are considered as universal recipients. Under no circumstances ‘O’ group can get any other blood except ‘O’. Similarly, ‘A’ group patient cannot be given ‘B’ group blood and vice versa.
Every individual has two types of blood groups. The first is called the ‘ABO’ grouping and the second type is called Rh- grouping. In the ‘ABO’ group there are four categories namely ‘A’ group, ‘B’ group, ‘O’ group and ‘AB’ group. In the ‘Rh’ group either the individual is Rh-positive, or ‘Rh-negative. Rh is a factor called as Rhesus factor that has come to us from Rhesus monkeys. Thus each and every human being will fall in one of the following groups.

A +ve or A -ve / B +ve or B -ve / O +ve or O -ve / AB +ve or AB -ve
