Heroes Give Blood Too
On January 26, 2023, a blood donation camp was organized at Gajera Vidhyabhavan in Katargam, Gujarat. Inaugurated by Trustee Kinjal Gajera, who also took the opportunity to donate blood herself the camp was organized by the Lok Samarpan Raktdaan Kendra, with the support of parents and teachers of Katargam, the principal, and employees of LD.
Present at the opening ceremony were several guests, including Dr Bhowmik Thakur, a neurosurgeon from Kiran Hospital, Dr KA Shroff, Health Officer from the North zone office in Katargam, Dr Dilip Tarasariya, MD from Krisha Hospital in Amreli, Dr Haresh Kumar Tunk and Dr Suni Jani, both BHMS, Shri Hardik Sabhadiya, an IB officer from Surat, Krunal Prajapati, an officer in the Merchant Navy, Pratibha Vohra, a Lieutenant in the Indian Army, Vikram Singh Parmar, a retired army personnel, and Nilesh Bhai Rabadia, a parent of a learner.
With a total collection of 195 units of blood the camp had 18 beds set up for donors. Donors were given certificates to recognize their contributions. The camp was held from 8 am to 12 pm, and was organized to provide medical services on the occasion of 26 January. The camp was a great opportunity for people to give back to the community and make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Blood donation is a simple and life-saving act of kindness. It is a way for individuals to make a direct impact on the lives of others. Blood is a vital component of our healthcare system and it is needed for a wide range of medical procedures, from emergency treatments to surgeries and cancer treatments. Unfortunately, blood supplies can often fall short of the demand, which is why regular blood donations are so important.
The opening of the camp by Kinjal ma’am was a great gesture and her donation of blood was an inspiration for all. The camp had all necessary facilities and medical staff to ensure that the donation process was safe and comfortable for donors. The guests and donors showed a great sense of social responsibility and humanity. The camp was a great success and it was a privilege for everyone to be a part of this noble cause.
The camp not only helped in providing much-needed blood for the people in need, but it also helped in creating awareness about the importance of blood donation. Many people do not realize that blood donation is a simple and easy process that can make a huge difference in the lives of others. It helped in encouraging more people to come forward and donate blood.
