Congratulating blood donors Mrs Mittal said: “I am happy to see an overwhelming response from the volunteer university blood donors. The record-making donation this year has ensured that we have enough blood for patients in our area hospitals in nearby region. We appreciate the generosity of students and staff-members for their participation and support to save lives.” Informing more, Mrs Mittal said: “To inculcate heroism and hero worship among students we have raised a student organization at the campus ‘Samarpan -a Lifeline’. We want that more and more volunteers should come forward as the demand for blood has gone up due to increase in number of accident, cancer, surgery, premature delivery, and plattelets-deficient cases. In fact, every one of us has a golden chance to save three lives by donating one unit (350ml) of blood. “
Camp organizing & donor students Nidhi Nayan (B Tech EEE – MBA), Devinder (B Tech –M Tech IT), Saurav (B Tech), Pulluru Kushal (B Tech Hons- ECE), Utkarsh (B Tech ECE) and others were very happy on the successful and amazing outcome of the camp. Nidhi from LPU School of Fashion Technology said: “It was first time for me to organize as well as donate blood. At first I was a little bit scared, but motivation from “Samarpan” made me to be up to the wonderful humane cause. The great thinking that my one unit of blood will save lives of three needy persons is pleasing me much from within.”
