I.T.S Engineering College, Greater Noida conducted a “BLOOD DONATION” camp on 9th

2014.

The camp was jointly organized by “Corporate Social Responsibility Cell of I.T.S Engineering

College” and “Rotary Club, Sahibabad” in the I.T.S Engineering College campus of Greater

Noida under the supervision of Prof. Sanjay Yadav, Dean of Student Welfare with Prof. Saroj

Dhal, Co-Ordinator of CSR Cell and other faculty members with supporting staff from the

Institute.

The Camp was inaugurated by Dr. Vineet Kansal, Director- ITS Engineering College at 10.00

a.m. and went up to 5:00 p.m. in the Evening. Around 16 members from Rotary Club including

Dr. Anita Singh-President, Rotary Club, Sahibabad were present for the noble cause.

The idea and value of blood donation is more than mere philanthropic. Our institute always

motivated the students, faculty members and staff for such philanthropic activities to ensure

our role for social responsibilities. All the students, faculty and staff members participated

voluntarily in the camp. In total, 300+ units of blood were collected.

As per survey, there is a shortage of over 1 lakh units of blood for patients in Delhi and NCR

itself. Many accident victims, innocent children suffering from thalassaemia, pregnant women,

cancer patients and other people in life threatening situations die due to shortage of blood.

By donating blood we can save a life. Voluntary blood donation is a selfless service and an

expression of love for mankind. Blood knows no caste, creed, colour, religion or race. It is one

of the most valuable virtues of an individual human being, who donate blood for the needy. To

give blood for family members or relatives or friends may be a normal experience but to give

an unknown or needy or poor individual is something exceptional. Many of us may not have

such noble experience of donating blood but this camp gave all, an opportunity to think about

others life and importance of a blood donation camp. Blood donation is harmless, painless and

absolutely safe and is, in fact, good for health. Through this camp, indirectly or directly we

are contributing our role for others life in our society. This camp helped students in getting

awareness about their social responsibilities and showed enthusiastic participation for the same.

The camp would not have been successful without the support and commitment shown by the

Institute Director Dr. Vineet Kansal.
