Jaipur-based university organizes blood donation camp
A large number of blood donation camps are being held in Rajasthan and many in Jaipur under the auspices of various institutions as well as social groups. The state government too organises a drive for blood donations in various government hospitals each year. Despite that the state has to improve its rank in blood donation in the national tally.

Voluntary blood donation camp was held at Jagan Nath University campus in Chaku Block of Jaipur district on October 9 in which the staff and students participated.

"To harmonize the Indian society with inequalities as a social reality, we need to promote equality on the basis of red blood running in the veins of every one of us," said Vice Chancellor Prof M.M. Goel while motivating the donors. "To say no to any death for want of blood, let us promote blood donation as a mass movement," he added.

He suggested the implementation  of the incentive of the kind by Haryana Government gives for blood donation among youth that of awarding  maximum of two marks (one for one donation) for the blood donors at the time of selection of Assistant Professors in the colleges, since he hails from Haryana and is a blood donor for 37 times.

According to doctors, anyone between 17 to 50 years of age weighing more than 110 pounds and in good health is eligible to donate blood. But, it is a cause of concern that less than 10 percent of the eligible population only donates blood.

Some slogans and motivation quote that are often said at such camps are as follows

-There is no great joy than saving a life.

-A life may depend on a gesture from you, donate blood.

-To give blood you need neither extra strength nor extra food, and you will save a life.

-Every blood donor is a life saver.

-The Blood donor of today may be recipient of tomorrow.

-Voluntary blood donation is the real act of humanity - a social act par excellence.
