Blood service and hospital staff, donors, transfused patients - indeed anyone whose life has been touched by blood - understand its power to transform lives.

Global Blood Fund offer you the chance to tell the story of how blood has impacted you personally or those you love or care for. Your story and pictures will help educate the world and secure support for improving blood safety and sufficiency in Asia.

Global Blood Fund is an international charitable organisation working with blood collection organisations in some of the world’s poorest countries.

GBF aims to ensure a safe and sufficient blood supply for all by promoting voluntary donation and helping blood collection agencies build a pool of regular, unpaid donors. This is a proven and cost- effective way to prevent the thousands of deaths that result each year from blood shortages and avoid the transmission of infections, such as HIV, that devastate lives and families.
