Why this team

The onus of finding blood is put on the family of the needy. There are times when the systems- the blood banks - the acquaintances - are simple not enough to get blood on time. It could be because of the volume of blood required, the time interval within which it is required, the scarcity of that blood group or simply because the awareness on possible search options is not there. Sankalp Emergency Wing is the "Last Ray of Hope" for the needy. The team is said to be the Last because they do not stop work till the time the person finds blood. Brings together all options, alternatives, knowledge and tools that might be useful.
