Khammam: To encourage people in donating blood voluntarily because every two seconds, someone in the country needs blood and with the slogan "Come-Donate-Save", The Hans India Association with Red Cross Society, HMTV and Kapil Group jointly organised a 'Blood Donation Camp' in Khammam town on Tuesday. More than 50 members donated the blood voluntarily.
Inaugurating the blood donation camp at the IMA Hall, local MLA Puvvada Ajay said that it was good sign that The Hans India management in association with HMTV was taking up such useful programmes for the betterment of the society with a sense of social responsibility.
Blood with its vital components performs important functions in the body. Now-a-days, everything was available in the market including artificial limbs and otherparts of the body parts but nothing can replace blood, he said.
He said that any healthy person could donate blood at regularly every year which saves the fellow human beings who were badly in need of blood. Everyday, 300 ml of blood would be rejuvenated in the body, he added.
Speaking on the occasion, president of the Red Cross Society Dr. Jayachandra Reddy said that blood transfusion was an essential component of patient care as one out of every ten people admitted in hospital require blood. Donation of blood results in saving millions of lives every year along with improving life expectancy. One road accident victim requires as much as 100 ml of blood, he added.
Kapil Group Managing Director Jangeti Raj Kumar said that blood was a scarce resource as it cannot be manufactured and can be obtained only through donation. Many patients are dependent on active blood donors who donate blood voluntarily without remuneration. Loves of many people can be saved with such generous blood donors, he added.
The Secretary of Red Cross Society Dr Rajesh Barge, Dr Raheem, Hans India Advertising Department Regional Manager Mallikarjuna, Circulation Manager T Narender, HMTV Correspondent A Nagendra, and representative of the Senior Citizens Forum Chandra Mohan and others were present on the occasion.
