RBC Sukkur was inaugurated in February 2018 by Khursheed Ahmed Shah, Sindh Health Minister Dr Sikander Ali Mandhro and Country Director Kfw Development Bank Wolfgang Moellers. It is situated inside Civil Hospital Sukkur. FAiTh is thankful to Dr Hasan Abbas & Dr Rab Nawaz Memon for inviting us and arranging our visit to RBC Sukkur. We were delighted to see the commitment of RBC team, their devotion, the hard work, standard, protocol which is being followed there. The similar standard / protocol should be followed in other blood banks / thalassemia centers too. Safe blood provision should be the top most priority of all blood banks & thalassemia centers like Regional Blood Banks.
