Many blood donation camps in association with prominent NGOs and Volunteer Organizations have become a constant feature at the University." Appreciating the efforts made by students and members of staff, she added: "Blood Donation by students is always voluntarily as they are themselves boosted up towards this noble and humane cause. So they come forward and set example for others to follow. They know that Blood donation is a kind of bond of love for fellow human beings as well as the gift of life; it is, indeed, a contribution to help other needy ones."
Continuing she informed: "Only yesterday, in order to share social responsibility, Faculty of Applied Medical Sciences of our University organized a Blood Donation Camp, with the help of Hindustan Welfare Blood Donors Club (Regd), Phagwara, at the University. It was responded well by many hundreds of donor-students and members of the staff, who remained queued up the whole day to donate blood. A contingent of 18 Para Medical Team Members comprising of doctors and technicians, under the guidance of Dr Gagandeep Singh and Dr Sangeeta Goel from the Civil Hospitals of Jalandhar and Phagwara conducted the donation procedure. The camp was organized in a very safe and hygienic environment, with slogan- 'Donate Blood for life'.
