Donate Blood Donate a Life
Perhaps the best gift one can give to a living being is life and support to live better. Blood Donation is one of the means and methods where you can directly impact one life and death decision.
At present our blood banks in India needs bloods to give support to the people who need it badly. We must encourage our citizen and children to feel proud after donating blood. Blood is required regularly for the people suffering from Thalassemia and renal failure or during Heart or other major operations.
In India still the awareness level is very less in rural part also for urban world many people feel next time we will do but that never comes in life. Due to medical conditions Diabetes and other people with chronic disease cannot donate blood. Hence eligible people are less in number to donate and among eligible also very few is willing to do so.
It is one of the social responsibilities for the peoples of India to motivate and make people aware to do all that possible to encourage people to donate blood. Many school and college have started this initiative to promote this social welfare activity.
One such camp was organized at Dum Dum, Kolkata,India where people of Nagebazar and adjacent area participated in last week.
