Khan BDS is the application of technology to furthering life. It helps build ties across the globe through a precious gift-the gift of life. This site brings those in need of blood and those who can gift it together at one stop. It reaches across to all humanity with no artificial barriers. It's a platform, which creates a link between: People who are in need of blood. People who wish to donate blood. It is equipped with databases with highly organized search facilities helping a user search for a blood donor with a specific blood group within a specific area. It also provides those who wish to donate blood voluntarily with an arrangement to do so and get in touch with the people who need blood.
A single donation from you can help one or more patients. This is possible because whole blood is made up of several useful components. These components perform special functions in body. The various blood components are Platelets, Plasma and selected Plasma Proteins. Each of these components can be separated from your donated volume of blood and transfused into a specific patient requiring that particular component. Thus, many can benefit from one unit of blood.

We need over 6,000 blood donations every day to treat patients in need across Pakistan. This is why there’s always a need for people to give blood. Each year we need approximately 200,000 new donors, as some donors can no longer give blood. Most people between the ages of 17-65 are able to give blood. Around half our current donors are over 45. That's why we need more young people (over the age of 17) to start giving blood, so we can make sure we have enough blood in the future.
