Bangalore, 22 March 2015 – A mega blood donation camp, aimed at creating awareness among society about the importance of donating blood, was today organised by Gyanoday Digambar Jain Trust Bangalore and Dr. Rajkumar Appaji Blood Bank at Digamber Jain Temple premises, Wilson Garden. The event was inaugurated by Sri Nihal Chand Ji Tholiya, President, Khandelwal Jain Samaj by lighting a lamp. Around 50 units of blood was collected during the campaign and would be distributed in hospitals across the city.
The camp was being organised to create awareness among the society on blood donation which was vital to save precious lives, which were being lost for want of blood. The one-day mega camp was organised to address this issue. All the donors were thoroughly screened and their hemoglobin count was recorded before they were allowed to donate blood. Doctors say that a person can donate blood about four times a year.

It was great to also see many ladies queued up to donate the blood. Besides people from Gyanoday Group, people from nearby region also came and donated their blood. The trust expressed their gratitude to all the donors and promised to keep organizing many more activities for social cause.
