What camp inside the campus! What is this? I will tell you, I am talking about the blood donation camp which was held in my college campus last saturday(15th March). This is the third camp organised in my college and it is the second occassion where I am a part of it. During my first year I was really unaware of this camp and to be frank I was very scared to give blood. I really wondered how my mates gave it with ease. But during my second year my friends encouraged me to take part in it and in an enthusiasm I donated blood(mind you there were too many butterflies in my stomach as that was my first time.
Once when I went there, I learnt a lot about it. The blood which one donate will be helpful to
save not 1 but 2 lives as it is divided into white or red blood corpuscles and used seperately as per the need of the patient. When we donate it we really don feel the importance of it, but when we see the people struggling to get the blood to save some ones life, Oh Boy!! its pathetic. Most
of the people misunderstand that, if they donate blood they will run short of blood which is
obviously not. Every human being contains around 51/2 to 6 litres of blood out of which only 350ml will be taken. Our body takes only 24 hours to regenerate the donated amount of blood.
The best part of the camp was, there were 4 blood banks present to collect the blood and around423donors took part in the camp. The doctors and the nurses present there were very
kind and taught us a lot about the importance of donating blood and also how to take care of ourself before and after donating.
This camp was scheduled suddenly and hence many of the students were unaware of it, but still so many turned up. This really shows that the future India is really shining. Among the people who turned up Guru and Venkat were noticable. Every 90 days we are allowed to donate blood which will be helpful to someone at the right time. So all we have to do is to have heart to
help others and execute it properly....
