Great Blood Drives-Events

Prathama fulfils almost 50% of blood requirement of the city. This has been done with the support of voluntary blood donors and voluntary blood drive organizers. Prathama was the first blood centre of the country to work on 100% voluntary blood donations, 100% blood componentization and availability of blood components to needy patients “without replacement”. All this was made possible with continuous support from our blood drive organizers. Prathama completed its 14 years of service to the society and on this occasion Blood Drive Felicitation program was organized. Blood drive organizers were invited on this occasion, who regularly organize blood donation drives with Prathama.
