newznew (Panchkula) : A blood donation camp was organized on the initiative of Amit & Tanu Sood –owners of Roshan Studios & Amit Sood Photography in the Sector 8 Market. “Few months ago we got a chance to be part of a show for cancer survivors’. This inspired us to do more for the society. So we planned the Blood Donation Camp as a measure of our Corporate Social responsibility.” Said Amit Sood. Fifty (50) units of blood were collected at the camp. “We thought of holding the camp just 2 days back & still were able to get good number of donors. What is encouraging is that many youth came out and donated blood.” Said Tanu Sood.
The event was also attended by Panchkula MLA & Haryana Cabinet Minister Gyan Chand Gupta, Panchkula Mayor Upinder Walia & Dy Mayor Sunil Gupta. The organising team’s efforts were praised by the dignitaries. “We now plan to make the camp a yearly event.”Added Amit Sood.
The blood was collected by a Medical team from General Hospital, Sec 6 and the blood donation took place under the supervision of Dr Seema Ghai. It is noteworthy that there is a major shortage of blood units in India. Hence, such camps are of help in creating a good buffer of blood, to be used in times of need.
