Blood Donation Camp on 23rd September 2017
IFMR, Sri City witnessed a burst of enthusiasm at a blood donation camp organized by Samarthan- The Social Service Committee of IFMR, founded in 2005. The camp was organized in association with Stanley Medical College & Hospital and the blood units collected would be used for patients in the same hospital. The camp started at 10:00 am and welcomed enthusiastic early birds all set for blood donation. Donors also encouraged their peers for participating in the initiative and a lot of first time donors also shed their fear and came forward for blood donation. The camp had a headcount of 120 donors registered and a plenty of on-the-spot registrations. It was exhilarating seeing so many happy faces taking time out of their busy schedule and coming together for a social cause. The campaign promoted commitment of students towards social responsibilities and was fortunate enough to witness their enthusiasm from standing in queue waiting for their turn to finding time between classes for blood donation.
