Rotary Challa Blood Bank

Rotary-Challa Blood Bank is a 24-hour Blood Bank, established through a collaboration between the Rotary Club of Hyderabad Deccan and Challa Hospital. Rotary-Challa Blood Bank was established in 2009 and has since donated a number of units of blood and its constituents to the needy and under-privileged. It was established with the goal of making sure that everyone, irrespective of their economic background, has equitable access to blood, when in need. With this goal in mind, during the pandemic, it launched a blood collection and donation drive for underprivileged children affected by Thalassemia. Rotary Challa Blood Bank has collected 4192 units of blood and its constituents in this year alone, and has now partnered with Hyderabad Deccan COVID CRUSADERS, an RCC instituted by the Rotary Club of Hyderabad Deccan, to continue serving the Hyderabad community, by providing equitable access to Plasma, for convalescent plasma therapy, to all.

Mobile Blood Donation

The Mobile Blood Donation Van was launched by the Rotary-Challa Blood Bank in 2018 to serve as a mobile blood donation center. It comes equipped with everything necessary for blood donation procedures like collection equipment, donor beds and short-term storage solutions. Recently the Mobile Blood Donation Van was equipped with disinfectant Jetting Machines, that disinfect after every collection, to allow for donors to donate blood without the fear of getting infected by COVID-19. This installment of a jetting machine was combined with an initiative to collect blood for underprivileged children affected by Thalassemia. Now, the Blood Donation Van will also enable COVID-19 recovered patients, to donate plasma with ease and convenience at the time and location of their choice.
