Dubai: Indian diplomat develops blood donation database in UAE

UntitledDubai: A diplomat with the Indian consulate in Dubai has developed an online database of blood donors in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a media report said on Sunday.

Consul (Economic and Education) Tiju Thomas who developed the web portal blooddonors.ae, will officially unveil the website on June 21, on International Yoga Day, Khaleej Times reported.

“The Indian community has the largest number of blood donors in the UAE. I would like this to be considered as a gift of the Indian community to the UAE,” Thomas said.

“We have a huge database. I will consider my whole work rewarded if at least one person’s life can be saved through this,” he added, urging donors with rare groups to be more forthcoming to register with the site.

Name, age, blood group, last donated date, mobile number of donors and their emirate will be listed on the website, which includes an emirate-wise blood group search facility, and carries the details of all blood donation centres in the UAE.

The UAE has been honoured by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for being among the top five countries with the best blood transfusion services.
