Set in a rustic low temperature place, civilization is not as advanced in this quaint little holy city of India as one might expect thanks to the large number of tourists who visit the city all-year-round.

Blood Banks in RishikeshTo increase awareness amongst the people of Rishikesh, many blood donation camps are organized in the city where people are made aware about the lack of blood banks in the city itself. With just one blood bank in the city, the medical officers and the government are trying to change the destitute scene of blood donation by organizing awareness camps. Meanwhile one blood bank in Rishikesh itself and various blood banks in Dehradun are trying to suffice the needs of the people in the hospitals.
