BHADERWAH, Nov 24: Wholesale Banking Operations (WBO) wing of HDFC Bank organized a blood donation camp here in collaboration with SDH Bhaderwah and Blood Bank Doda.
A total of 18 units of blood were collected from as many donors.
The day long camp in which volunteers of ADHINA Trust and staff of HDFC Branch Bhadarwah participated was held at Sub Distt Hospital Bhaderwah.
On this occasion Dr. Varsha In-charge BMO Bhaderwah was chief guest while chairman ADHINA Trust Asghar Hussain was guest of honour.
The camp started with motivational lecture by Dr. Varsha Kotwal who educated the youth about benefits of blood donation and cleared various myths.
“It is heartwarming and encouraging to see the overwhelming response of youth especially girls who queued up in large number for their turn to donate blood,” said Branch Manager, Nisar Batt.
“We could have made record of collecting blood in a single day but due to lack of infrastructure we were unable to cater to all prospective donors,” WBO Doda Musarrat Butt said.
“We need to spread awareness to encourage blood donation,” said BBM Bhaderwah Mansoor Shah, who also donated blood during the camp.
Prominent among those who were present during the camp were WBO officials Musarat Ali, Kulbir Singh and Muthair, Bank Staff B.M Nisar Batt, BBM Mansoor Shah, Ranjeet Singh, Rajat, Zahir, Junaid, Ubaid Ramzan and Raja R. Jamal.
