Today IIM Raipur in association with Indian Red Cross Society organised blood donation camp in its campus. It was coordinated by the members of ‘Kartavya’ -The Corporate Social Responsibility club of IIM Raipur under supervision of Dr. D.V.Baghel of Indian Red Cross Society. The students of IIM Raipur enthusiastically participated in this event. About 80 students donated blood.
The event started at 10 am. Dr. Baghel came with his team of 9 members from the Red Cross Society. They properly examined the health status of the participating students. On the basis of Hb%, Blood pressure of the students, the students were selected for donation of blood. Doctor and Red Cross members very much appreciated the effort of students and said that it feels proud watching students are coming forward and taking their social responsibility.
The students of IIM Raipur were enthusiastic and felt proud in donating blood for a good cause. Many of them were first time blood donors. Joe and Vivek, 2nd year students, felt delighted after their first blood donation and pledged to be regular donors. Girls of IIM Raipur also showed their keen interest in donating blood. Kiriti, Pooja, Aparna, Kanika and many more donated blood and helped in breaking the myth that girls are behind boys in donating blood. Many students who were afraid of blood donation come forward this good cause and actively participated in the event. Kudos to Kartavya members- Dutta, Varun, Abhas and Nadeer for organising such a good event in the college campus, we hope such events are organized regularly. The students felt satisfied after performing their social responsibility and were ready to do it again .
