What is BOAT?

Blood and Oxygen Access Trust by LifeBank (BOAT) is a fund set up to provide blood and oxygen at no cost to people who have trouble paying their hospital bills.

We believe no Nigerian should die from a shortage of essential medical products like blood and oxygen, and are working to make this a reality. BOAT is one of the steps we are taking towards achieving universal health coverage. Join us by making a donation!

BOAT's Philosophy

  • We believe that doctors and healthcare workers are critical stakeholders in the implementation of healthcare social impact projects.
  • We believe that private capital can be harnessed for social and public good.
  • We believe that radical transparency is a key ingredient in building trust and ensuring the longevity of social impact projects.
  • We believe that for this project to have significant impact, it requires significant capital.
  • Red Boat

    How it Works

    LifeBank works with doctors to identify and support low-income patients. The process is thus:

  • Doctor registers with BOAT by providing details such as MDCN No., Hospital, and Hospital Address
  • Doctor identifies low income patient who needs blood or oxygen for treatment and is unable to afford it
  • Doctor calls BOAT on behalf of patient and sends information for accountability
  • Blood or Oxygen is delivered to the doctor for patient’s use
  • BOAT follows up with patient after 2 weeks
  • Funding Partner whose funds were used to support patient is informed about the disbursement of their donation

How to Support BOAT

Everyone, from health workers to the general public, can play a role in making BOAT a success. To support BOAT,
