Blood cannot be manufactured in factories; it can only come from generous donors. To cater to this demand, NISTHA was launched on 14th June, 2010 with an unparalleled objective of solving the problem of blood shortage in our locality. The man with a pious heart to serve the mankind who donated the land to erect a permanent structure of NISTHA is none other than Sri Purnachandra Tripathy, a native of Khandahatha village.
According to WHO data, India faces a shortage of 3 million blood units. This shortage can easily be eliminated if only an additional 2% of India's youth donates blood. To make this possible, NISTHA acts as a channel connecting voluntary blood donors with those who need blood. It is a youth-run organization and provides free help and specially works to target the poor and the needy.
Since its inception, the organization has grown a lot in terms of working for this cause, NISTHA has developed a 360 degree solution to the problem of blood shortage.
