Young IAS Officer Abhishek Singh has come out as a hope for those searching for credible plasma donors. His initiative ‘United by Blood’ is a step towards creating the largest repository for plasma and establish real-time and seamless contact between donors & recipients. In these times when social media is abuzz with people coming out to find & share covid- resources, this unique initiative displays the proactivity of our IAS Officer.
“There are many requirements of the patients who need plasma – the eligibility of the donor, the location, and timely blood plasma transfusion. It is to close these gaps that the idea of this portal under United by Blood was conceived. We’re very happy that dozens of plasma donations have already been connected through the platform and have received plasma. Majority of the donors are youngsters under the age of 30”, said IAS Abhishek Singh.
A not-for-profit mission driven by Abhishek, is already getting viral on social media and has seen 1000+ registrations in just five days of its launch.
People are coming forward in support of this noble cause. Ease My Trip has partnered with us and giving ₹500 cash voucher for all the registered blood donors. Similarly, Uber is mulling over giving free ride to donors till the hospital.
Taking to acting, he had featured in the series Delhi Crime, his role was widely appreciated. He also featured in music videos ‘Tujhe Bhoolna Toh Chaha’ sung by Jubin Nautiyal and ‘Dil Tod Ke’ voiced by B Praak.
