Mother Teresa said, ‘Small is beautiful’. ICYM Udupi diocese has taken a small initiative by launching this app, but their success is very high. Through this app, a bridge is created between life givers and life savers. By launching this app, they have also shown that how technology can be used in life saving works. This is an innovative idea. Let this idea spread all over India. By this app, an easy connection between blood donors and blood seekers will be established.”

To donate blood or to get blood through REDROP app, users need to register themselves by filling basic information. When blood is required for someone, they should also register themselves and find a donor in nearby places. The donor can be directly contacted when blood is required. The donor can also mark himself as not available when they are on other important works. The app is currently available on Google Play Store and shortly it will also be released on App Store.

Ryan Christ D’Souza, app developer and director, TFN Enterprise (OPC) Pvt. Ltd explained about the working of the application.  

Sponsors and donors were honored on this occasion by the bishop. Prizes were distributed to the winners of ‘Redrop Ad-Shoot’. Raising Smiles, Team Katpadi, Gururaj and team bagged first, second and third place respectively.
