Blood banks in Mumbai

A call has been put out for blood donations. Hospitals are running short.
In case you can donate blood :

Blood Banks
or you can register with Indian Blood Donors.


  1. The response to requests for blood have been overwhelming.

    As of 3.00pm Blood Banks(corporation as well as private- Sion Hospital, Cooper Hospital, Hinduja, Holy Family contacted) seem to have adequate units of blood in stock and are discouraging more donations.

    While its is amazing to see so many people pouring out onto the streets to donate blood in response to such a calamity, it is true that even if half of us donate blood more regularly we would help save more lives than this mad rush will.

    So if there are still people out there who would like to donate blood, hold on. Wait for a month or two, and then make it a habit.

    Or register yourself on and respond to blood requests.

    Thank you all.

  2. i am sure all you people are well-informed, but please remember that diabetics and people with heart diseases cannot donate blood.

    its a waste of effort if you donate out of the goodness of your heart...
