LifeBlood Nigeria is an independent NGO (CAC/IT/NO 86164) set up by High Life in Lagos, to address the gap between the blood currently supplied in the country and the amount and quality of blood that the nation needs. Our goals are to:
– Foster a culture of regular, voluntary blood donation so that Nigeria has enough supplies of blood to deal with normal needs and national emergencies;
– Build and maintain a national voluntary donor database to make the process of donating blood simpler, safer and more pleasant.
– Become a centre of excellence in the provision of blood products and services so that every Nigerian has access to safe and appropriate blood when and where they need it and at a price they can afford.
LifeBlood gladly accepts operational and financial support from individuals, charities, government offices, media houses and corporate entities that also wish to address the urgent need for more and safer blood supplies in Nigeria. Together, we can end the desperate, agonising, race-against-the-clock, search for blood, which is taking place across the nation… even at this very moment.
