Our Business is Saving Lives
P airing state-of-the-art app and blockchain technology with a fleet of souped-up motorcycles, Lifebank quality-controls and emergency-delivers lifesaving medical products such as blood, blood products and oxygen to hospitals in Lagos and other parts of Nigeria.
Within its first two years of operation Lifebank has brought the time it takes its dispatch riders to deliver blood to any hospital in Lagos from 3 hours down to 45 minutes – saving more than 5000 lives in the process so far.
Founded in 2016, Lifebank is on a mission to save one million lives over the next 10 years and is now planning to use drone technology to help reach more remote rural areas across the country.
