Manish Goel from Hamara Pyar Hisar said blood shortage is a common problem during summers. But today, with god’s grace, the weather was good and the team has achieved the set target of 500 units, it’s an incredible achievement for all. Thanks to all blood donors who contributed to this noble cause of saving one’s life and to the team who worked hard to achieve the aim. The team also ran a blood donation awareness campaign in which hundreds of students from various educational institutes were motivated for the blood donation.
A separate refreshment zone was assigned for refreshments after blood donation. The camp also had a free Cholesterol and blood glucose level test table by the Max labs.
Also, not only men have enthusiastically come forward for the blood donation, the number of women blood donors was also great. Not only young girls but females between 35-40 years of age showed great zeal.
“With this blood donation drive, we hope we have plugged the shortage of blood for a few days. Thanks to Hisar people and members of Ek Kadam Zindagi ki Aur and all associated NGOs who helped us in our event. Blood on Demand is a tough task but due to members and donors, it has become easy and possible to save someone’s life. We are hoping to organise more camps in future to keep the stock up in the blood banks,” said Manoj Khandelwal from Ek Kadam Zindagi ki Aur NGO.
The Blood donors were given refreshments, a donation certificate and a token of appreciation for their contribution to the noble cause of blood donation. The organising Team thanked Anjani Khariawala, Owner of Aggrasain Bhawan for his contribution to the event.
