The Blood Donation Camp

A Noble Cause

The Blood Donation Camp conducted by NTR Memorial Trust at Dilsukhnagar Arena got off to a brisk start at 10.00 a.m. on December 29, 2011. In a show of solidarity, hundreds of students and staff turned up to contribute to this noble cause.

While the boys, as expected, turned up in large numbers and took part in the Blood, Eye and Organ Donation Program, it was very heartening to see the girls participate with equal enthusiasm.

All the ten beds arranged for blood donation were occupied all through the day with students and staff waiting eagerly in queues at each bed for their turn. The Blood Donation Camp would have stretched in to the late evening hours had it not been for light failure. At about 6.00 p.m., as the medicos were finding it difficult to spot the veins of donors due to poor light, the camp had to be wrapped up leaving many an enthusiastic student disappointed.

Some volunteers were not allowed to donate blood as a precautionary measure because they were underweight. Others were restricted from participating on health grounds as they were either under medication for some ailment or because of their medical history.

The Eye and Organ Donation Camps conducted simultaneously by L.V. Prasad Eye Institute and Mohan Foundation also witnessed a rush of good Samaritans. A knowledge session on the procedures and issues related to eye, organ donation was held, after which, students and staff were free to decide in favour of, or against donation. In all, students and staff pledged to donate 67 organs (30 eyes and 37 organs - Heart, Liver, Kidneys, Lungs, and Pancreas).

The Blood, Eye and Organ donation camps organized by NTR Memorial Trust, L.V. Prasad Eye Institute and Mohan Foundation of Hyderabad at Dilsukhnagar Arena Campus was a resounding success.

The Academy wishes to place on record, its sincere thanks to all its students and staff for the exemplary support.
