Wala means Life in the Ghanaian GA Language. Wala is a mobile application that allows hospitals in Ghana to send notification to potential blood donors and also educate the public on the importance of blood donation.
The app will also serve as a database for blood donation activities with the aim of digitizing the whole process in the long term. Wala was founded by Bisa a mobile health technology company in partnership with the National Blood Service Ghana.
Blood donors who use the application are given a unique code that is integrated with the National Blood Bank database in the case where they or their family need blood or their family , that code allows them to get the blood after payment of processing fees.
