“We didn’t expect the student response to be so overwhelming,” says Mr Kamalchand Veerwal, blood bank incharge and lab technician. He added, “We usually need 16000 units of blood every year in Udaipur alone, and we only receive 4000-5000 units from voluntary donation. Rest of the requirement is covered through direct transfer of blood to the needy. But still our routine stays very tight.”

Mr Kamalchand himself is a regular donor for blood group AB+. Today he had a team of 8 members, which includes four doctors.

The camp stayed on for 3 hours starting at 10 in the morning and was actively flooded with donors the entire time.

The donors were first screened through some basic tests. After which if selected, donating process took ten minutes on average under Doctors’ supervision and then the donors were sent to refreshment area.

Mr Debasis Mukherjee, faculty member of the Institute, seemed quite excited and captivated by the whole process. He commented, “I donate blood because my blood group [A-] is extremely rare and I realize how, us, donors should unite to keep each other under safety zone.” Mr Mukherjee believes it is a moral and a humane deed to donate blood and encourages youngsters all over the world to do the same.

If every University organizes a blood donation camp every semester or so, Mr Kamalchand is sure that the demands of Thalassemia patients [currently 100-110 in number] would never be let down ever.
