Kathmandu, February 12
British Minister of Armed Forces, Mark Lancaster, visited Nepal Red Cross Society’s Blood Transfusion Centre in Balkumari of Lalitpur on Monday.
Lancaster was in Kathmandu to see the Centre’s building constructed with the support of British government and British Red Cross around three years ago, an NRCS official says, adding the emergency service centre was constructed to be prepared for any emergency especially earthquakes.
The building is earthquake resistant and made up of container and fitted with solar panels so it can run in a situation of no electricity.
The Minister was accompanied by the British Ambassador Richard Morris during the meeting.
The NRCS says they delegates also held a lunch meeting with the NRCS team yesterday itself.
