TeamUK Founder Utkarsh Kishore Launches Awareness Campaign To Boost Blood Donations in Bihar |

July 8: Utkarsh Kishore, a social reformer and the founder of TeamUK in Bihar, has launched a campaign to take advantage of the country's booming social media usage and encourage more people to donate blood frequently while using social media platforms as a key hub to address various health issues.

“The last two years of the pandemic has put a burden on our health-care system, making it more difficult to sustain the blood banks that so many people rely on,” says Utkarsh Kishore. “At the same time, the excessive use of social media during the pandemic seemed like an opportunity to draw people's attention and aware them of negative health issues which can be better avoided.”

Utkarsh Kishore has formed a partnership with Facebook in association with WHO to help state blood banks connect with donors more swiftly and easily. The volunteers of his NGO, TeamUK are visiting door to door to comprehend people about the right procedure for donating blood and locate a donation site near them.
