Blood Donation Camps

Realizing the urgent need of blood donation across the country, Amar Ujala Foundation has organized more than 80 blood donation camps in 7 states between 2015 and 2016 and collected more than 8500 units of blood. The unique feature of this campaign is that all the units of blood collected go to the Blood Banks located under the local District Hospital, where maximum number of patients getting operated, who come under below poverty line category are benefitted. The enthusiasm with which the volunteers had donated blood can be noted from the fact that often during these blood donation camps, we had to refuse volunteers from donating due to lack of space at the blood banks for the collection. With our high spirited endeavor, AUF has been able to provide regular supply of blood to the blood banks in cities like Agra, Kanpur, Lucknow and Dehradun for months. AUF has not only given new hope of lives to those who needed blood, but also given a chance to many, to contribute meaningfully to the society.
