Every year on June 14, World Blood Donors Day is celebrated to create awareness about blood donation.
Sri Ramakrishna College of Arts and Science and Sri Ramakrishna Hospital jointly organized a Blood Donation Camp on Saturday following proper safety norms.
The donation was held in a phased manner so that limited number of donors could come to donate at fixed intervals.
R. Sundar, Joint-Managing Trustee, SNR Sons Charitable Trust thanked the blood donors for volunteering. He said even at this critical pandemic period, many patients would be requiring blood. He pointed that 1 blood donor can save 3 people through his donation. He said that access to safe blood is still in demand for many across the world and wished that more donors emerge in future to make lives better.
Throwing light on this camp, Prahadeeshwaran, PR-M, SNR Sons Charitable Trust and NSS Chief Coordinator, Sri Ramakrishna College of Arts and Science said “for the last 10 years, the NSS Units of Sri Ramakrishna College of Arts and Science has been joining with Sri Ramakrishna Hospital to donate blood. We adhere to proper social distancing norms and execute this camp. Not just on World Blood Donors Day, even on National Blood Donors Day, we donate blood because we have realized the importance of this act and we educate our students the value of being a blood donor through NSS programs”.
