Amgad Morgan’s organization, Hope, provides vital medical service utilizing the newest mobile technology to connect blood donors and blood recipients. In Egypt, patients are required to pay for blood transfusions, making many procedures unaffordable for low income individuals. By connecting those in need with a network of willing donors, Hope is able to reduce hospital costs , while helping support healthy and safe blood donation practices.
Hope functions both as a smart phone application and as a stand alone SMS service, ensuring that any individual with a mobile phone is able to access the network.
In a region where there is a lack of awareness surrounding blood donations and transfusions, Hope engages vulnerable populations on a critical medical issue.
