Khammam: It is a good sign to see the youth coming forward for a good cause to help Thalassemia patients by donating blood, said Assistant Commissioner of Police Venkatrao here on Monday.
The representatives of the Ganesh Youth Organisation under the leadership of Murali organised a ‘Blood Donation Camp’ to help Thalassaemia patients here at Budigajangala colony in Khammam.
As many as 50 youth donated blood to help Thalassaemia patients. Speaking on the occasion, the ACP Venkatrao said that Thalassemia is a blood disorder which is affecting millions of people causing thousands of deaths every year worldwide and blood donation is the easiest form of helping Thalassaemia patients.
Donating blood for every three months is an excellent practice and is actually beneficial to the body as it boosts the body’s mechanism and the blood that has been donated is easily made back by the body, he added.
In recent times the awareness about the blood donation and Thalasaemmia disease in general is increasing on a large scale but the struggle for the patients is still continuing. Blood donation is the easiest form of helping Thalassaemia patients humanity and hardly takes any time, he added.
