“The rally was organized to motivate the donors and also to educate the common mass to donate blood often. We require 20,000 to 22,000 unit blood every year; if we meet this quota pre-hand to the moment-of-need then we don’t have to ask patients relatives to rush for blood donation on the spot”, said Dr. Narendra Mogra, Prof. & HOD, Pathology Deptt., RNT Medical College.

There was also a group session of authority and donors, where donors shared their ideas of how to motivate individuals to donate blood and how to meet the required quota of blood.

The Blood Donation Camp would continue to run on 15th, 16th and 17th June, 2012 at the Pathology Seminar Hall, RNT Medical College.
