A drop of blood donated is a life saved, with this vision in mind Shikhar Dhawan Foundation in
association with Guru Nanak Dev Charitable Blood Centre organised a blood donation camp drive at
Delhivery IGI Airport Hub on the 27th of May, 2022.
The drive saw many donors and staff members from Delhivery IGI hub coming together to donate
blood for a noble cause. Volunteers helped the people and gave moral support to the people
donating blood. Donors were provided with the juice, biscuits and fruits after their donation. The
samples were carefully sealed and transported to the Blood Bank. This camp helped the first time
donors in getting awareness about their social responsibilities and because of the same, so many
individuals showed enthusiastic participation for the same.
According to estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO) India needs approximately 15
million units of blood every year. A shortage of this valuable resource has a major impact on victims
of road traffic accidents and trauma victims, women with complicated pregnancies, children
suffering from thalassemia, and people undergoing major surgeries.
