We are very happy that many associates, their families & alumni of Sathguru Management Consultants, neighbours & friends have come forward to give hope to children fighting thalassemia and cancer. Every drop of blood count to save a life. This initiative has enabled children to lead quality life and we believe that this initiative will stir up many more such generous volunteers to come forward and support the cause in the future as well. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our associates for always coming forward to support the blood donation camp & volunteering to donate blood whenever there has been a need in the city".
