Zanoor Blood Donors Society
Zanoor is a leading and distinctive humanitarian organization to enhance well being of patients in our service area by assuring supply of reliable blood donor and by promoting research and education program in transfusion medicine .
The project aims to develop an efficient and active blood donation system.
We have started our blood donation system in which we and our donors are working in collaboration to donate blood to those who need it. Our system started working on 20th August, 2018.
We are striving to bring in collaboration, as much blood donor societies within the country as we can. In this mission, two foundations namely Meem Foundation and Khidmat Blood Donors Society have collaborated with us. We are working to find donors and help others. We have got many donors who are helping us to proceed our work.
Zanoor Foundation is introducing a new way of working in the blood donors’ societies. We have hired an office communicator who handles the cases, and our team which provides donors to Zanoor. Moreover, we have designed a schedule of weekly awareness campaigns regarding blood donations and their benefits.
We hope that our mission of serving humanity and saving lives shall be accomplished soon and we will have a great blood donors’ society and blood bank as well. Moreover, we hope that the mission of collaboration of blood donor societies will indeed become a reality. INSHAA ALLAH
