A blood donation camp was organized by IHM, Rohtak, attracted a lot of Blood Donors!
Institute of Hotel Management, Rohtak conducted a blood donation camp recently.
Every year our nation requires about 4 crore units of blood, out of which only a meager 40 Lakh units of blood are available. Blood donation is a safe process. Without prior medical checkups no one is allowed to donate blood. Every blood donor is given a mini-physical, checking the donor's temperature, blood pressure, pulse and haemoglobin to ensure it is safe for the donor to give blood.
There is a constant need for regular blood supply because blood can be stored for only a limited time before use. Regular blood donations by a sufficient number of healthy people are needed to ensure that safe blood will be available whenever and wherever it is needed.
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.
The initiative was supported by Punjab National Bank. Every year institute organizes a blood donation camp to serve the humanity.
The camp witnessed participation from college and outside the college. Staff and students enthusiastically donate blood.
