New Delhi Institute of Management hosted a blood donation and Thalassemia check-up camp, embracing its responsibility toward the community. NDIM contributed to the noble cause of blood donation and the glaring issue of Thalassemia by organizing a free check-up camp in association with the Indian Red Cross Society and in collaboration with the Rotary Blood Bank.
A team of doctors and certified professionals visited the college and worked with the college faculty and produced a very successful campaign. Chairperson Ms. Bindu Kumar lead this initiative and talked about the importance of blood donation and the dangers of Thalassemia, educating them about very real and pervasive issues present in society, and their responsibility toward it. After the distribution and collection of the registration forms, all volunteering students and faculty members went through a mini physical examination in order to check their hemoglobin levels to see if they were fit for blood donation.
The campaign was met with an overwhelmingly positive response from students and staff. The doctors and faculty were most cautious and concerned about the health and safety of the donors and ensured that no one was left unattended. The campaign yielded donations of 64 units of blood and126 samples of Thalassemia check-ups. The donors were appreciated with certificates and refreshments. Doctors expressed their gratitude toward the staff members and donors and thanked them for their cooperation, which resulted in a very smooth and fruitful campaign.
