Blood bank services are of primary importance for health care facilities. Sada Welfare Foundation renders its financial support to help meet needs of poor patients and support the limitations of health care system of Pakistan. It is the foundation’s major project and large number of people has been benefited from this financial support.
Before the establishment of Sada Welfare Foundation I personally with my friends establish Blood Bank in NICH in 1997. Since its establishment the blood bank management is look after by NICH. First of all Dr. Afaq of NICH look after the matters of Blood Bank and then Dr Bheem and Dr. Nargis do that. Dr. Zeenat Issani always supervises the NICH Blood Bank. Dr. Rehana & than Dr. Furqan looking the technical and management matters. Present staff was interviewed and selected by Dr. Furqan Ex HOD of Blood Bank & Laboratory.
After the establishment of Sada Welfare Foundation in 2002 we start supporting the Blood Bank from the platform of Sada Welfare Foundation. Initially when the blood was establish the running cost per annum was approximately one million and at present it increases to PKR 25 million. Since its establishment we spend more than PKR 200 Million. More than Eight hundred thousand patients are benefited by this blood bank.
The Blood Bank is a part of the NICH and Blood Bank has been set up by Sada Welfare Foundation through its own renovation and installation of air conditioning, refrigeration, fixtures and fittings, furniture, equipment, technological process and staff. With the passage of time we replace the old machines with new ones. Every year we replace two or three equipment with the new one so that the patients could get quality blood products from NICH blood bank supported by Sada Welfare Foundation.
Services are completely free of cost for patients admitted in NICH and open for needy without any discrimination.
