Nepal Blood Transfusion Center has faced shortage of blood because most of the blood donors have been out of the valley for Dashain festival.
The Center faced the shortage of blood of various groups also because the storage ran out.
Although the Center is in need of 500 pint of blood every day following the Ghatasthapana, it is supplying only 300 pints, said a technician, Sushila Dhakal.
Although the Center has the storage of some 1,500 pints of blood of A, B, O and AB+ groups, it has only some 100 pint of blood of negative groups.
Another employee, Tirtha Pande said the Center should manage any alternative during the festival because it runs out of the blood this time.
