Since the onset of the pandemic, there is a tremendous strain on healthcare including blood transfusion services.
Let us see what May had in store for us at Sankalp.
16 camps were organized in the month of June collecting 1171 units of blood.
Last month we had 205 patient visits with 276 transfusions at Indira Gandhi Institute of Child Health. The average pre-transfusion hemoglobin was 8.3gm/dl and the estimated post transfusion hemoglobin was 12.1 gm/dl. At Samraksha we had 164 patient visits with 205 transfusions.
There was a time when we at Sankalp considered September and October has months of relatively less workload, however as you will see, now each team is fully occupied serving their mission objectives all year round. Let’s see what happened in the month of September 2014.
Last month we cross the 1000 mark for the number of blood units being transfused to patients suffering from thalassemia across the state of Karnataka.
Here are the events and updates from the month of March.
Rakta Kranti: The Blood Revolution
A total of 7 drives were organised. 453 units of blood were collected. 15 donors had an adverse reaction which is about 3.3% of total donations. The deferral rate was 10.65%.
Sustained efforts through the winter weeks of December saw a few blood donation drives materialize in the month of January 2016. Plenty of small blood donation drives in apartments and malls were organized right through the month.
