The Participants included Faculty Members, Non-Teaching Staff and Students. LLIM in collaboration with KEM Hospital and Sankalp Swapnpurti Pratishthan (NGO for Visually Impaired) organized a Blood Donation Drive on 3rd November 2023 in the Library Room on 2nd Floor. The entire event was sponsored by HDFC Bank, Kamala Mills.
Doctors (from KEM Hospital) and their assistants first checked the blood samples for their suitability of reuse. Upon confirming the suitability, the blood was extracted from the donor. Breakfast/juice coupons and colorful Diyas were provided to the donors along with the participation certificate, batch and on the spot blood donation identity card by HDFC bank and KEM hospital. The response was excellent, around 77 donors donated blood. This initiative aimed to inspire students to engage in blood donation, emphasizing its crucial role in assisting those in need.
