PEC Stands up for the Cause of Blood Donation

Paying head to the acute shortage at the PGI Blood Bank, NSS PEC, under the guidance of PEC Director Dheeraj Sanghi, organized a Blood Donation Camp which was open to the staff, faculty, students and the residents of Punjab Engineering College (deemed to be university).

The compassionate staff and students who donated the blood were taken care of at the highest level of sanitation and medical precautions amidst Corona fears. Recliners were carefully sanitized after each donation and social distancing norms were observed by everybody at the camp. All donors were thermal scanned before donation.

Curfew passes were arranged for the donors who came from outside the campus, with the help of Chandigarh Administration. Prof. Dheeraj Sanghi, Director PEC, deans, faculty, staff and numerous students of the college donated blood. Sh. Ajay Singhal, ADGP Haryana Police and his wife Mrs. Seema Singhal also donated blood for this noble cause. The camp, with a rejection rate at 25 percent, concluded with 30 blood donations. The NSS team expressed their gratitude to security and estate office, PEC for their esteem support and for standing up to the call for this social cause.
