Description 

T4L is an intervention employed to enhance Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service (KNBTS) blood donor communication and digitize the blood donor records. It is projected to increase the number of blood units collected by recruiting new donors using mobile phone and web based platform. Once recruited, the potential donors are directed to blood donation sites close to them for the actual blood donation by use of SMS messages. They receive messages alerting them when the results are ready and where to collect the results.
