Kathmandu,9 Nov 2014: The Central Blood Transfusion Centre has been facing blood shortage. The centre lacks blood due to the festive season as well as upcoming 18th SAARC Summit, according to the Centre.
Service recipients have been hit hard due to the blood shortage in the Centre.
Service recipients complained that they have been compelled to return empty handed even after visiting the centre continuously for two-three days.
Whereas, Chairman of the Volunteers’ Blood Donors’ Society Prem Sagar Karmacharya said that there was no blood shortage in the Centre as blood donors are ready to donate blood at any time.
Director at the Centre, Dr Manita Rajkarnikar, said the Centre has been facing the blood shortage as blood donors did not donate blood during the festival season.
