A Blood Donation Camp was organized by the NSS Unit of Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University) in coordination with the Department of Transfusion, PGIMER (Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research) on 22nd March 2018. A total of 236 units was collected.

The event was graced by the Chief Guest, Mr. Sofi Zahoor, Chairman of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Chandigarh. The guest of honor was Dr. Chand Narayan, Chief Consultant, HYM Consulting. Also present were Dr. Manoj K. Arora, Director PEC and Dr. Perminderjit Singh, Dean Student Affairs, PEC.

The inauguration of the camp was followed by words of wisdom by the dignitaries. The dignitaries talked about real life incidents relating to need of blood. They emphasized the need to be kind to others and how Blood Donation Camp has an important part in this.

A felicitation ceremony was held for the donors where their contribution was acknowledged. The ‘Star Donors’ i.e. the people who have donated blood at least four times in the past were presented with a token of appreciation for their valuable contribution in this noble task. Also, the first 80 donors were rewarded with a small gesture of appreciation.

This move serves as a motivating factor for the donors; encouraging them to actively participate in Blood Donation Camps in the future. The Chief Guest was presented with a token of gratitude. The students, as was previously, were given donor cards that would help them in future to obtain blood in times of need.
