Blood donation camp in Sirhind

Fatehgarh Sahib, June 2

Akal Welfare Society organised a blood donation camp at Sirhind today. Didar Singh Bhatti, halka in-charge, SAD (B), inaugurated the camp. A team of doctors from the Civil Hospital, Fatehgarh Sahib, collected more than 50 units of blood at the camp.

Addressing the gathering, Bhatti said every drop of blood was precious as it saved human lives. Blood was a natural gift and could be collected through donation, he added. He called upon people to come forward for the noble cause. There was a big gap between demand and availability of blood, he said.

Everyone should donate blood especially in the present Covid crisis, he added. People were not donating blood due to Covid threat, he said. He appreciated efforts of Akal Welfare Society in organising the camp. Surjit Singh Sahi, Suresh Sharma, Sanjay and other Akali leaders addressed the gathering on the occasion.—OC
