Description: Every year on 14th June, countries around the world celebrate World Donor Day (WBDD). The event established in 2004, serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank blood donors for their voluntary life saving gifts of blood.
Being a part of their celebration a Blood Donation Camp was conducted in Loreto Convent Tara Hall by the JPIC wing of the school on 15th June, 2019. This camp was organised in collaboration with the NGO-Almighty Blessing and IGMC, Shimla.
The blood collected through this camp was sent to the largest hospital in Himachal Pradesh i.e. IGMC Shimla. The donors were asked to get themselves approved as fit and healthy to donate blood from the doctors who were present at the camp itself. The donors were provided refreshments to feel strengthened and energetic. Parents came in large number to make this event a success. A total of 70 people donated blood and the school managed to collect 70 units of blood in one day. The JPIC team of Loreto is hopeful that the participants will be able to save many lives and help society in their own way.
