Dr. Veena Doda said, “Donating some units of blood, may save someone's life without generating any problem to donor’s body. In fact, it refreshes our system by activating the bone marrow in order to replenish the blood loss, resulting in production of new red blood cells.”
Girls and boys equally participated in the camp. Doctors said that most of the girls were found to be anaemic. It is due to deficiency of vitamin C and iron. Whenever symptoms like loss of appetite, weakness, frequent dizziness, breathing problem, and headache occur, it is advisable not to miss a doctor’s visit. Iron-rich food such as peanuts, dried beans, dried peas, mustard, and turnips help increase blood volume. Besides these red meat, fish, and chicken etc. are also beneficial. Vitamin C is important as it helps our body to consume more iron which has beneficial effects. So, we should include Vitamin c rich food also like oranges, orange juice, grapes and grapefruit juice, tomatoes and tomato juice, strawberries, potatoes, green peppers, cabbage, raisins, melon, and watermelon. Teachers along with students participated actively. Priyanka (student) said that this camp gave her the opportunity to contribute to society. Doctors’ advices were also beneficial for all.
