Dr. Manish Rai, Director of the Blood Resource Centre, emphasized the vital role of blood donation in healthcare, saving lives every day. He highlighted the blood bank’s modern facilities for providing blood and platelets.

The Rotary and Blood Bank Society Resource Centre is a standalone blood bank jointly initiated by the Rotary Club of Chandigarh and the Blood Bank Society.
