Blood Donation

This wing of JWF deals specifically with emergency blood transfusion. JWF believes through its efforts it can help improve the healthcare system by supplying rare blood groups that might be needed at a moment’s notice.Most patients believe that it is their responsibility to organize donors to meet this need. In other words, the search for blood begins after the need has arisen. This naturally would put a lot of pressure on the patient.This also compromises on the safety of blood. It is an established fact that a voluntary blood donor is the safest source of blood as compared to a donor who responds to the need of a specific individual. Ideally the blood units should be present in the Blood Bank before the patient is admitted. Voluntary blood donation drives at venues convenient to donors can easily ensure that this objective is met. This is reassuring to the patient, easy for the donor, and, more importantly, ensures availability of safe blood. We take special care in selecting healthy donors and thoroughly check their blood for. Considering this being a wing that needs to be ready for emergency situations, all the members engaged in it have the tenacity and will to operate 24/7. Hence, this team is quite dedicated in its work, with being aware of constant updates or pleas that might be sent to JWF. The donors are also dedicated in their efforts with many of them having rare Blood groups ready at the disposal for those in need of it. Our efforts also include awareness programmes and encouragement to those who might be willing to help us save lives of the people in need.

The Bangladesh Government has passed “Safe Blood Transfusion Law 2002” in the Parliament and “Safe Blood Transfusion Rules 2008”, also published in June’08. This law is a regulatory law for setting up blood transfusion centers, management, blood collection, blood storage, blood testing and transfusion to prevent unauthorized practices of human blood transfusion. Establishment of private blood banks, operation, licensing system, inspection committee, punishment for violation of rules, etc is clearly stated in the law. JWF tries to uphold the above provisions and carries out its work in order to save lives as well as trying to abide by the international code of conduct as formulated by Red Cross for all blood donation works held by it. Bangladesh has a history of having inadequate storage facilities and poor supervision overlooking the blood banks in the hospitals which frequently leads to many mishaps reported on the news. There have been instances of blood banks having broken freezers for cold storage of blood, blood transfusion without conducting the necessary tests- resulting in transmitting of disease, wrong labeling of blood bags and even theft causing many of the citizens of Bangladesh to suffer and loose lives or that of their loved ones.
