blood safety

The focus of blood safety is to ensure that everyone has access to a safe and reliable supply of blood at a reasonable cost. Many low-income countries have an endemic prevalence of life threatening infections that are transmitted through the blood supply. Populations of pregnant women and children under the age of five are especially vulnerable to unsafe blood transfusion practices.

Since 2005, Helmer Scientific has been working to reform healthcare in developing countries in partnership with Global Healing, a leading international medical non-profit organization, by equipping blood banks in the countries of Georgia, Armenia, Dominica, Moldova, and Haiti. We also actively support the efforts of the International Blood Safety Forum, which was initiated in 2012.

We have chosen to not ignore others' suffering caused by the injustices in our world, so we are taking action to provide solutions and alleviate hardships. We have done so through international service and expertise sharing trips to Ukraine, Rwanda, Guatemala, and Haiti, sponsorships and mentoring for children in 24 countries on four different continents, economic development in multiple countries, support of adoption and several orphanages, product donations to hospitals, blood banks and research universities, and collaboration with international NGOs.
