Facebook visits Jamila Sultana Foundation Blood Bank in Pakistan

More than 1 million donors in Pakistan have signed up to donate blood using Facebook's blood donation product



Islamabad, December 05, 2018: As part of his week-long trip to Pakistan, Facebook Vice President of Asia-Pacific - Simon Milner - and his team visited the Jamila Sultana Foundation Blood Bank in Islamabad on Wednesday. 

Facebook launched Blood Donations in Pakistan earlier this year to help make safe blood more accessible in Pakistan to all licensed blood banks and hospitals. With the blood donations tool, people can sign up to be blood donors on Facebook and get notified when people, blood banks, and hospitals near them need blood. It has an ongoing partnership with SBTP (Safe Blood Authority) to train blood banks on how to find volunteers donors through Facebook. 

Since the launch in March this year, more than 1 million donors have signed up to donate blood in Pakistan using Facebook's Blood Donations. And more than 25% of walk-in donors at the Jamila Sultana Foundation have come from Facebook. 

“Connecting people in meaningful ways is incredibly important to us. Pakistan, like many countries, has a shortage of safe blood. In some cases, this shortage means patients and their families are responsible for finding donors to replace the blood they receive from blood banks or hospitals. This is where Facebook can help, by finding ways to more efficiently bring blood donors, people and organizations together. Our research suggests that when people have better information and tools, they’re more willing to donate blood — and it’s easier for people who need blood to find donors. We hope this product continues to help people come together in ways that weren’t possible before, and makes it easier for people and organizations in Pakistan to give and receive blood.” - Simon Milner, Vice President of Public Policy, Facebook Asia Pacific. 

"It was a pleasure and honour to have Mr Simon Milner, visit Jamila Sultana Foundation to help raise awareness of the rising challenge of thalassemia in Pakistan which affects over 100,000 patients every year and this number is increasing due to millions of carriers and lack of awareness. Only prevention can help deal with this disease and Facebook has been an effective tool for us to help raise awareness and to increase our walk-in donors using the new Facebook Blood donation feature." - Tauqir Abbas, Project Director, Jamila Sultana Foundation
