Blood Donation Camp@XIMB

No act of humanity can be greater than saving a life!!
The Social Responsibility Cell of XIMB (SRC) organized a blood donation camp on the 24th of October, 2009 in cooperation with the Rotary Club, Bhubaneswar and the Red Cross Society.
The event saw a massive turnout with more than 60 blood bags being collected in a single day. This was the single largest turnout in any blood donation camp in Bhubaneswar since June 2009. The credit for this accomplishment goes to theindomitable spirit of XIMBians who came forward shedding their inhibitions and apprehensions to do their bit for the society. Mr J.K. Tripathy, the President of BBSR Rotary Club and Prof.Latha Ravindran were also there at the event to boost the morale of the participants and organizers. As someone once said, 'Blood is that fragile scarlettree we carry within us'; we duly hope that the fruits of this tree continue nurturing lives even when we are gone.
