Warangal: By donating blood one could give life to patients, who were in medically critical condition, said Warangal Rural District Collector M Haritha.
The Collector called upon public, especially healthy youth, to come forward to donate blood as frequently as possible to help those in medical emergency. There were apprehensions among public about blood donation, but no health problems would arise on donating blood, she clarified.
Collector Haritha inaugurated a blood donation camp organised by The Hans India-HMTV at Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS) in Hanamkonda on Tuesday, marking International Labour Day (May Day).
She appreciated the initiative by The Hans India-HMTV in organising the camp. There was no substitute for blood transfusion when it was required and organising blood donation camps could help in addressing the shortage of blood being faced.
Blood transfusion was required in patients met with serious accidents, anaemia, child delivery and Thalassemia cases. Hence one should try to donate blood for every three months, Collector Haritha suggested.
She visited different wings at IRCS and interacted with technicians and IRCS office bearers. Speaking on the occasion, the IRCS chairman Dr P Vijay Chander Reddy said the IRCS has been meeting blood transfusion needs of majority of patients in erstwhile Warangal district by collecting a lion’s share of nearly 30,000 units required annually in the district.
He lauded The Hans India-HMTV’s initiative of organising blood donation camp. The IRCS chairman and other officer bearers Dr K Sudhakar Reddy, M Nagaiah, EV Srinivasa Rao, B Papi Reddy, Dr T Vijayalakshmi, Ch Jayasree, B Hariprasad and manager M Ravinder Rao have presented Red Cross Pin and a memento to Collector Haritha, marking her first time visit to the IRCS.
Meanwhile, fulfilling The Hans India-HMTV’s objective of encouraging young blood donors, many first-time donors have donated blood at the camp. Safal Bharat Foundation settlor Kishore Parupelli, Telangana Vidyarthi Sena district president Elugam Srikanth, Youth for Society activists P Sandeep and M Pavan, youth from Parkal S Saajan, S Vekatesh and S Praveen were among the first-time donors.
City Congress working president and an avid blood donor Rajanala Srihari and TS CPS Employees Union district convener Doddipati Hari Kumar also donated blood at the camp. MBC JAC state convener Paladugula Surender, a regular blood donor and ‘Best Blood Donor Award’ winner, was an inspiration at The Hans India-HMTV blood donation camp, where he donated blood for 59th time.
“I am very happy to participate in the blood donation camp organised by The Hans India and HMTV, which have been striving to highlight public issues and always stands by the common man,” said Congress leader Srihari.
Arya Bhatta Educational Society correspondent Bharath Naresh Chandra, The Hans India-HMTV’s staff have donated blood at the camp at which about 55 units of blood was collected. Youth for Society founder president Kodimyala Srinivas Rao and Telangana Vidyarthi Sena state president T Sheshu were present.
Karimnagar: The blood donation camp organised by The Hans India and HMTV in association with Kapil Chit Funds and Indian Red Cross Society here on Tuesday had witnessed enormous response
Nearly 30 people donated blood voluntarily at the blood donation camp.
Red Cross Society Medical Officer M Lakshmi Narasimha Reddy inaugurated the blood donation camp and said that we need stronger advocacy calling for regular blood donation by healthy people. The media and press coming forward for such programmes is a good sign for helping the society.
Many victims of road accidents and those, who suffer with different types of health issues, require blood that cannot be manufactured. The needy will get blood and could be saved only by blood donation by fellow human beings, he added.
