Problem statement:

Our country has a big lack when it comes to blood donation, the culture of donation is not that popular and many people need blood in hospitals.
Another problem is that in rural areas people do not recieve proper healthcare a lot.

Target groups and beneficiaries:

Target groups: people in rural areas
Beneficiaries: patients needing blood

Objectives and indicators of success:

– Have more people donating blood in rural areas
indicator: number of people donating
– Have people in rural areas checked up
Number of people checked up

Methodology:

We start by choosing the place where we want to go, then we make a call for medical students and doctors, then with the help of our faculty we vgather materials necessary for our work.
We then go to the place, with doctors and students, make stands for people to donate their blood, have medical check ups, blood pressure measurement, glucose measurement, and ophtalmology and dental check.

Plans for evaluation:

we measure the number of people who donate their blood, also the number of people who benefited from the check ups, and also the number of students who participated,
we also ask students, doctors and patients about their feedback and see what could be improved
