Blood Donation Camp- Phase 2 @ IIM Raipur

To the young and healthy it’s no loss. To sick it’s hope of life. Donate Blood to give back life.

Kartavya , on behalf of IIM Raipur organized a Blood Donation Camp at IIM Raipur( College Premises) on 2nd January, 2014 in association with the Indian Red Cross Society. This was the second phase of the event, the first arranged at Magneto - The Mall, Raipur. The first phase witnessed a huge response from the masses of Raipur. The second phase was also a very successful one with students, faculty and staff members contributing whole heartedly to the noble cause.
The event started at 10 am in the morning  and continued till 6 pm.The event  witnessed the total turnaround of 74 donors. There was participation from the neighboring Government Engineering College.
The blood samples of the donors were initially tested by the Indian Red Cross Society Members. Only those samples which met the conditions of blood donation were accepted. This was followed so that the blood collected was of good quality and the donors health was not put to risk.
Kartavya expresses its gratitude to IIM Raipur Administration and Indian Red Cross Society for facilitating the event so smoothly.
A great round of applause for all the people who made their presence felt for the cause making this event a success.
Five minutes of your time + 350 ml. of your blood = One life saved.

So, Donate Blood. Save Life!
