HYDERABAD: A voluntary blood donors’ website www.friends2support.org has made it to the Limca Book of Records for having the largest blood donors database. The website, started six years ago, has a database of 90,000 voluntary blood donors.

Friends to Support Organisation founder Sk Shareef said the Limca Book of Records on Monday communicated to them about the entry made in the latest series of the book. The Limca Book of Records authorities lauded the services of the organisation stating that no other website provides information about such a large number of blood donors.

“If a donor is willing to display his/her contact information for the benefit of the people, we put it up online. The database is not run by any blood bank and no large institution monopolises it," said Shareef. A new SMS feature will be launched on Tuesday for voluntary blood donors registered with the website allowing them to login to the website, modify their online data.
