On behalf of these teams, 490 units of blood were collected by these teams on a single day. According to the information, the blood donation camp was started at 9 in the morning, and despite the scorching heat, there were long queues to donate blood right from the morning.
The teams of Rajindra Hospital Patiala, Neelam Blood Bank Rajpura and Life Line Blood Bank Patiala were brought with their luggage to take blood. The teams of blood banks were pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm of blood donors. This blood donation camp lasted till 2 pm. Blood banks completed their quota on behalf of the teams, whereas devotees were still awaiting their turns even after 2 o’clock, but blood bank teams gave up due to the shortage of infrastructure and moreover their demand was fulfilled too.
