Blood Donation Camp on the Occasion of NCC Day – 22 Nov 2020
This report intends to brief about the involvement and support served by 06 KAR AIR SQN NCC, Flight – B, Alva’s College, on blood donation camp conducted on the occasion of NCC at Muchur Grama panchayat. The 06 KAR AIR SQN NCC, Flight – B is headed by Flight Commander Fg Offr Parveez Shariff B G under the guidance of Commanding officer Gp Capt A G Srinivasan.
OUR COMMITMENT AND ACTION
The day started with understanding that a single donation can save three lives and one blood donation provides different blood components that can help up to three different people.
Blood is needed every two seconds. Unfortunately, only 37% of the country’s population is able to donate blood. An adequate amount of blood is needed in all healthcare facilities to meet the urgent need for patients facing trauma and other lifesaving procedures, such as blood transfusions which saves millions of lives each year. There is no risk for donors irrespective of the age factor. Blood donation process starts with registration followed by medical history, donation and then refreshment. Sterile needle is used for each donor. It takes less than 10-12 minutes. Less than one pint of blood is taken from the body. Our cadets were really enthusiastic to take part in the Blood Donation Camp and inspired many others to take part in it. We found the positive attitude of donors’ desire to help a family or a friend in need to blood was the most cited motivation for Blood Donation Camp. Finally, if you’re a blood donor, you’re a hero to someone, who received your gracious gift of life.
The Blood donation camp was conducted by 06 KAR AIR SQN NCC, FLT-B, Alva’s College in association with Lions Club and Munchur Grama panchayath and contacted the KMC Hospital to collect the blood and medical assistance. The Air Wing cadets motivated the cadets of Navy, Army cadets and other college students of Alva’s college to join their hands, and also motivated localities to participate in this campaign. Total of 70 cadets & students and 02 Officers from Alva’s college participated, the details are provided in table 1.1. The blood donation camp was successful with the collection of 96 units out of which 53 units of blood were from cadets/students/officers and remaining units were contributed by local people.
