Keeping in view of the importance of blood donation to save lives, college-going students of Assam’s Eastern Karbi Anglong college organized a blood donation camp at their college on August 30th, 2019 where over fifty students vehemently came forward to donate blood.
At the drive, authorities of the prestigious Eastern Karbi Anglong College spoke at length on the need and importance of voluntarily donating blood. Along with the students, college faculties, managing authorities joined hands for the noble cause.
“We are extremely proud to be a part of this drive. Donating blood can save someone’s life, so we urge all the students of other colleges to organize such blood donation camps, whenever they can,”, said one of the blood donors of the Eastern Karbi Anglong College while speaking to Time8.
The donated blood samples will be sent to the blood bank of the Diphu Civil Hospital and will be released as per clinical needs.

To fulfill our duty towards the society, we organized this Blood Donation Camp-in cooperation with the Director of Heath, Karbi Anglong- which turned out to be a grand success”, said the principal of Eastern Karbi Anglong College.
