Rajamahendravaram: Adikavi Nannaya University (AKNU) College of Arts and Commerce principal Dr D Jyothirmayi has said that donating blood to the needy was a boon to the people and it is the gift of god.
Participating in a blood donation camp conducted by NSS volunteers at the campus here on Friday, she said many people were dying for want of blood. There should be adequate quantities of blood in hospitals and blood banks to perform major operations and save lives, she added.
Blood could be reproduced in our body and it could be donated thrice in a year and also helps to save the life of others, she added. She said that donating blood was a noble act.
Everyone, especially the students, should inculcate the habit of serving the needy and NSS volunteers were doing a commendable job in providing blood and saving lives.
