ESIC organises blood donation camp
India has huge potential of voluntary donors, which is yet to be tapped. Blood Donation Camps, like the one organised by ESIC, can be a decisive step in making the critical shift from replacement donors to a voluntary blood donation system.
In his inaugural address, SKG Rahate (IAS), financial commissioner, ESIC, said, ‘We are all aware of the immense importance of blood donation in our country. Every year our nation requires 4 crore units of blood but only 40 lakh units are available. There is a need to educate and empower our people to contribute towards this noble activity. I hope this blood donation campaign will encourage our employees and other volunteers to lend their support to more such campaigns in future.’
