DODA: On the eve of World Blood Donor Day, June 14 2014, a Voluntary Blood Donation camp was organized by Blood Bank District Hospital Doda in collaboration with 10 RR, JKP and CRPF. The camp was sponsored by Delta Diagnostica Doda.
District Development Commissioner Doda Mr. Mubarak Singh inaugurated the camp while SSP Doda Mr. M.S Chouhan, CO 10 RR Mr. Sunil Mishra, CMO Doda and other officers of Health Department and District Administration were also present.
Speaking on the occasion, Singh said that each and every healthy person should donate blood so that our blood banks have adequate stock of blood and it will help in saving many precious lives when blood is urgently required in any emergency. He said because of topographical and geological factors unfortunate mishaps do happen in the region and the health emergency like situation arises which requires blood transfusion in most of the cases.
DDC appreciated the initiative of District Hospital Doda and said that regular voluntary blood donation camps should be organized in different parts of the District. He stressed upon the need of creating awareness among the masses to weed out the psychological fear associated with Blood Donation and educating the people about the health benefits of Blood Donation.
