Rotaract club of PES University, hosted a "Mega Blood Donation Camp" on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, 2nd October 2021 at PES University campus. Blood donation is a service to mankind. Millions need blood owing to some medical condition and their only hope remains with volunteer blood donors. Every day, numerous blood transfusions take place and save millions of lives all over the world. It not only benefits the needy, but also enhances the health of the donor. That's precisely the motive behind the camp.
The camp inauguration was graced by honourable DG Fazal Mahmood, District Governor, RI 3190 district. We were glad to have our esteemed Vice Chancellor, Dr. J Surya Prasad, Registrar, Dr. K S Sridhar, Dean- Student Affairs, Dr. V Krishna, Rtn. Rohit Nagesh, President- Rotary Bangalore Banashankari and Rtn. Taranath D M, Secretary- Rotary Bangalore Banashankari at the inauguration ceremony. This selfless drive was in collaboration with Rotary Bangalore Banashankari and other sister clubs who gave their best to make the event a grand success. It gave us all a sense of responsibility and a sincere gesture towards the society.
The event spanned from 8am to 5pm on 2nd October and we are proud to have received almost 250 units of blood from students of PES University and the general public among various age groups. We, Rotaractors celebrate every individual who volunteered to donate blood for the needy. Every donor was awarded with a certificate and T-shirt as a token of appreciation. We also thank Sanjeevni blood bank, Doctors for their immense support to help us achieve this feat. Through our small gesture, we were successful in spreading awareness among youngsters, adults and old age groups to regularly donate and serve humanity.
