The 43 Years Journey Of Surat Raktadan Kendra And Research & Centre
Blood Bank Scenario in the year 1976
Before 43 years any patient in Surat who needed blood had to go to a commercial blood bank. Commercial blood banks took full advantage of this situation and exploited the situation by selling substandard blood collected from poor and diseased professional donor.
