Indonesia is lacking blood supplies. Collecting blood donation from the public has been problematic for Red Cross / PMI because blood donors are limited or they are not aware where they can donate or need convenient, safe place to conduct collection.
Usually PMI establish blood donation centers by borrowing space in public places. However such centers may not attract sufficient number of Donors. Therefore, Hino Indonesia intends to assist Red Cross / PMI in their blood donation program. Hino Indonesia has designed Mobile Blood Bank as a collection center for blood for Red Cross / PMI.
With the Mobile Blood Bank, PMI will be able to reach more people at various areas to seek more blood donations. The design of the Mobile Blood Bank enables donors to donate blood inside the vehicle.
The collected blood can be refrigerated on the vehicle and the equipment for collection can be kept sterile and safe for the donors.
