As rate of blood donation among the people reduces due to religious restriction during Holy Ramadan, there develops a shortage of blood for the patients in different hospitals across the country. With an aim of filling the blood deficit in the health care services, Ramakrishna Mission, Dhaka, arranges special Blood Donation Program every year during the holy month of Ramadan.
