Blood Donation Camp

  • 2024-02-23

The "blood donation camp” was organized on February 23, 2024, by the collaborative efforts of the blood centre at the DEPARTMENT OF IMMUNOHEMATOLOGY AND BLOOD TRANSFUSION, SANTOSH MEDICAL COLLEGE AND HOSPITAL and KHALSA HELP FOUNDATION. 

The main objectives of the blood donation camp were

• To collect a significant number of blood units to meet the demand of local hospitals and medical centres.

• To raise awareness about the importance of voluntary blood donation and its impact on saving lives.

• To encourage community participation in altruistic activities and promote a sense of social responsibility.


The blood donation camp encompassed various activities aimed at engaging donors and creating a conducive environment for blood donation. These activities included:

• Registration: Donors were required to register upon arrival, providing essential details such as name, age, contact information, and medical history.

• Medical Screening: A team of qualified medical professionals (Dr Amit Varma, Dr Anshul Chaturvedi, Dr Arun Tintoo) conducted thorough medical screenings to assess donors' eligibility for blood donation. This screening included checking vital signs, haemoglobin levels, and medical history evaluation to ensure the safety of both donors and recipients.

• Blood Donation: Eligible donors proceeded to the blood donation area, where trained phlebotomists collected blood units using sterile techniques and disposable equipment.

• Refreshments: Refreshments and snacks were provided to donors post-donation to help replenish their energy levels and prevent any post-donation discomfort.

• Education and Awareness: Informational sessions were conducted to educate donors about the significance of blood donation, its impact on saving lives, and the importance of regular donations.


The blood donation camp witnessed an overwhelming response from the community, with 20 individuals voluntarily donating blood. The collected blood units are expected to benefit numerous patients requiring transfusions for various medical conditions, including surgeries, accidents, and chronic illnesses.


The blood donation camp was a resounding success, thanks to the collective efforts of volunteers, healthcare professionals, and donors. The event not only contributed to addressing the blood shortage but also fostered a sense of unity and compassion within the community. Moving forward, by the collaborative efforts of the blood centre at The Department Of Immunohaematology And Blood Transfusion, Santosh Medical College Hospital And Khalsa Help Foundation. remains committed to organising such initiatives to meet the ongoing need for blood donations and promote public health awareness.
