BLOOD FOR LIFE CAMP
A blood donation camp was organised by Truba Group Of Institutes at the institute campus on Monday, August 10, 2015. The blood donation drive was organised to celebrate the “15th Foundation Day of TRUBA” as well as to help the needy and to spread the message of benefits of blood donation among youngsters. The blood donation drive was organised in collaboration with the Indian Red Cross Society
The donated blood will aid transfusions to children affected by thalassemia, an inherited autosomal recessive blood disorder that causes the weakening and destruction of red blood cells. Nearly 1000 children affected by thalassemia are registered with the Red Cross Blood Bank and approximately 30-40 children benefit from the daily free blood transfusion provided by the Red Cross Blood Bank.
TRUBA has previously organised various such blood donation camps at its campus. More than 75 volunteers from among the students, faculty and staff members participated voluntarily in the camp. The camp helped the community in gaining awareness about thalassemia. The community came together to participate with great enthusiasm and deepened social awareness among them
