# Sai Medical Unit #

The Sai Medical Unit was established in April 1998, with Dr Nadana Chandran and Margaret Williamson as joint coordinators. Separate coordinators were appointed for each state. The SOFT program began in Western Australia in 1999. CPR training was given to devotees in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, ACT and Western Australia. Medical equipment has donated and sent overseas.

Blood Donation

Human beings have 5-6 litres of blood in each of them, always. Out of which if one donated blood, about 200 to 300 ml of blood is drawn at a time from a volunteer. This gets replaced in volume within 15-20 minutes, and the blood cells take a day or two to reform.

The Service Wing coordinates regular blood donation in concert with the Red Cross Blood Bank. More information is found in the service wing web pages.
