Sindri, March 2: BIT-Sindri students responded generously once again to the call for ‘liquid life’.
The students’ body of the premier cradle, Prayaas India, organised a blood donation camp at the additional primary health centre at Gaushala in Sindri today. Altogether 20 units of blood were donated by the BTech students of the institute.
Lions Club of Sindri joined hands with the Voluntary Blood Donors’ Association, a district-level outfit, to extend its support to the BITians.
While inaugurating the camp, head of civil engineering department R.P. Sharma commended the initiative of the students.
“Being an integral part of society, students must always work for its well-being. The blood donation camp is a good attempt in this regard,” he added.
Deepak Kumar, a member of Prayaas India, said that the recent appeal of deputy commissioner Sunil Kumar Burnwal to all sections of society to come forward to donate blood prompted the students to take this initiative.
“We will again organise similar camps in Sindri and other areas of the district whenever needed,” said Anand Kumar, another member of Prayaas India.
The wing also champions the cause of educating slum children of Sindri and its adjoining areas.
Fast Forward, a students’ wing of ISM, also works for social projects, including career counselling for students, educating slum children and donating blood.
