Blood donation is the greatest charity. There is no other charity higher than blood donation. By donating blood, 3 people can be saved. In India, 16,000 people die for want of blood. Blood donors should be healthy and between 18 years to 65 years of age and they should weigh at least 45 kilos. May this blood donation camp be conducted in a good way” he said and wished the students all the best.

Dr Aman said, “By donating blood, your body will get better health. We will be healthy. It takes 1 week for half a litre of blood to be absorbed in the body. You should not do heavy work for a week after donating blood. Blood donors should eat healthy food i.e. green vegetables.”

In his presidential Address, Fr John D’Souza S J said that, “We develop a relationship only when blood is donated. We don’t forget the people who donate blood. Also, you will get god’s blessings for donating blood.” He said and wished the students good luck. As many as 65 members donated blood.
