"The Indian community has the largest number of blood donors in the UAE. I would like this to be considered as a gift of the Indian community to the UAE," Thomas said. "We have a huge database. I will consider my whole work rewarded if at least one person's life can be saved through this," he added, urging donors with rare groups to be more forthcoming to register with the site.

Name, age, blood group, last donated date, mobile number of donors and their emirate will be listed on the website, which includes an emirate-wise blood group search facility, and carries the details of all blood donation centers in the UAE.

The UAE has been honored by the World Health Organization (WHO) for being among the top five countries with the best blood transfusion services.
