Rajkot, Oct 17 (UNI) Shree Sadguru Sadan Trust, an organisation working for the upliftment of the poor, will start a blood donor bank for poor patients admitted in the civil hospitals of Gujarat.
Managing Trustee of the Institution, Pravin Vasani told media here today that initially the Trust will enroll 11,250 blood donors and provide them with identity cards.
The project will start on October 21 at the office of Shree Sadguru Sadan Trust here. The donors will be available to provide blood to poor patients at civil hospitals as and when required.
The Managing Trustee said that blood donors will be scouted from all the districts of the state, who would be available at the time of emergency.
Mr Vasani said that the Trust has already approached the authorities of civil hospitals, who have accepted the project and have assured to provide their help and support.
Mr Vasani clarified that the Trust is not going to establish a blood bank but the organisation has its own laboratory where the donor's blood group will be checked and his or her name will be registered in the group of donors.
He said that the registered donors will be able to donate blood for this organisation only.
Inspired by Shree Ranchhoddasji Bapu, Shree Sadguru Sadan Trust was established in 1961 and has been working for the upliftment of the poor and needy.
The Trust has its own charitable hospital in the name of Ranchhoddasji Bapu which is working for below the poverty line patients.
Shree Sadguru Sadan Trust is involved in many other services such as providing free food to needy people daily through a tiffin service. They also provide meals to patients admitted in the government hospitals and organise blood donation camps.
