Social Welfare club of GLIEMR, Gurgaon organized a blood donation camp in its premises with the support of Rotary club on 12th of February, 2013. The camp got a very good response from the students of all the three batches of the institute. At the end of the day approximately 55 units (1 unit of blood=350 ml) of blood were collected which showed the enthusiasm of the students towards the noble cause. The doctor present at the camp informed that each unit of blood is used to save two human lives. Even the Rotary club staff was impressed by the huge turnout of students at the camp.
The students before donating blood had to undergo some basic check up like blood pressure and hemoglobin. After the donation each donor was given a memento, a certificate of appreciation and a blood donor card which entitled them to receive blood free of cost for a period of one year.
The event wouldn’t have been successful without the support and co-operation of the faculty and the house-keeping staff. Social Welfare club promises to organize more such noble events regularly at the campus.
