“What’s my motivation? Put simply, it’s hunger. I am hungry to create change and make a difference. I have overcome so much but know that it is all worthwhile.”
Melissa Bime is the founder of Infiuss Cameroon, a revolutionary online health service that connects health facilities to a vast database of blood supplies. Melissa launched the online blood bank to overcome the unreliable supply of emergency blood supplies in her country. In sub-Saharan Africa, 500,000 deaths occur each year as a result of a lack of blood and in Cameroon, 89% of blood needs in hospitals are not met.
