SATELITE BLOOD CENTRE

'Krishnaji Ranade Blood Collection Centre'

As PEN is situated on the Mumbai - Goa Highway, due to which hospitals in Pen always require Blood and Blood Components. As there was no blood bank in Pen, and the same was earlier mobilized from Panvel or Mumbai, which was quite time consuming as well as Risk of life for the patients as well. Hence Ahilya Mahila Mandal planned to setup a Satellite Blood Centre, where in Blood and Blood Components will be stored and supplied to the Needy.

'Krishnaji Ranade Blood Collection Centre' which is linked to a Blood Bank in Mahad, Blood and Blood Components are stored and supplied to the needy people in Pen Taluka. In its first year approximate 300 units were supplied thru this set up, which is a good achievement where in many lives have been saved due to this Blood Centre.
