History[edit]

Mother Blood Bank was launched by Mamidi Sai Akash in 2013 which was inaugurated by late Dr. Abdul Kalam, the former president of India.[6] Mother Blood Bank, a brainchild of Sai Akash, was established by him after witnessing an accident of his friend. He required immediate blood transfusion but could not conveniently find one.[4][7]
