Blood Donation Camp
7th September 2016
Rotary Club of Green Greater Noida organised a Blood Donation Camp at Dronacharya Group of Institutions on 7th September 2016. The camp was organised under the banner of DGI -NSS Wing.
Prior to the Donation Camp, a Motivational Talk on Thalassemia and Blood Donation was conducted by Dr. Tejinder Singh on 6th September 2016, to create an awareness amongst students. Dr. Singh said that THALASEMIA MAJOR is a deadly genetic blood disorder causing severe anemia. One out of 25 in our population is a Thalassemia carrier. Ten thousand babies are born every year in India with Thalassemia Major. This alarming figure will accelerate if awareness campaigns are not addressed on a war footing by one and all.
