Mysuru, November 8:- As part of students’ social responsibility and to sensitise students towards societal cause Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD), Mysuru, in association with HDFC conducted its annual ‘Blood donation camp’ at its Wellness Centre here on Friday.
More than 70 students voluntarily donated blood.
On Friday, the students both boys and girls came forward to donate blood for the needy people. The blood donation camp was inaugurated at 10 am and to everyone’s surprise; they were anxiously waiting to donate blood.
T Revanth, a student coordinator, who is doing his final year PGDM at SDMIMD and a regular donor of blood, said “Around 70 students including girls came forward to donate blood. Each students on an average donated 180ml of blood. We have seen many patients dyeing without proper blood, the commonly available blood including O positive is available, but there are rare blood groups which is difficult to get. Hence, such blood donation camps will really help in getting such rare blood groups and help the deserving people.”
There are more than 300 students studying at SDMIMD. Most of the students here are very eager to donate blood to the needy. If a person comes for blood, the students alert in their WhatsApp groups and see that those who come for blood will not go with empty hand. They manage to get the required blood or they will be ready for exchange of blood. After seeing the importance of blood, eight years back students with management decided to have annual blood donation camp. (NGB)
