Social Activities - Blood Donation Camp 2013-14
Blood the most integral part of life is given to those who need it by those who have the resource to satisfy the need. The love of fellow human and a desire to share something of one is what singles out a blood donor from the others. Emergencies occur every minute. For each patient requiring blood, it is an emergency and the patients could have set back if blood is not available.
The blood donation camp was organised by Pillai HOCL Educational Campus associated with Rotary club of Patalganga on Tuesday 4th February, 2014 at 9.00 am. Deputy CEO Dr. Lata Menon inaugurated this social event. The students of Pillai HOC Polytechnic were actively participated in the social activity to make this event a grand success.
This endeavor was initiated by students and even the faculty members turned out in huge numbers to contribute for this social cause. The students from entire campus responded warmly to the noble cause and it turned out to be a huge success.
Initially students were quite apprehensive about donating blood; however the volunteers and the team of doctors carried out group discussions and cleared their doubts regarding the myths on Blood Donation. There were doctors from Dr. B. V. Limaye blood bank, Panvel who guided and advised the students' volunteers and the donors. Refreshments were provided to the donors. Each donor's hemoglobin level and weight was checked before the donation. The donors and the volunteers were also given a certificate of appreciation and a donor card.
The total number of bottles collected was 180. The enthusiasm was so great that 200 persons registered for the blood donation camp. We hope that even in the future our college continues to render its name and support to such social causes and we will continue to help humanity in all the ways we can.
