He also congratulated the students for actively taking up the initiative to donate blood and for this occasion. There was an active participation from the student’s side. The blood donation camp was an eye opener, which made them realize that they can also contribute towards the welfare of the society even in small ways and make a big difference. About 90 students including the staff donated blood and it was one of the successful events. GID club also organised the stem cell registry. Hundreds of men and women are relying on the Stem Cell Donor Registry to find a compatible donor. A stem cell transplant is often their last chance of overcoming a serious illness. Hence volunteering to donate by enrolling on Stem Cell Donor Registry is very simple. All you have to do is devote a little time and be prepared to donate stem cells to anyone who needs a transplant. 35 students along with the staff members registered themselves with this registry. Students are eagerly waiting for the next initiative from the GID club to happen so they can extend it to teaching fraternity and also involve corporate as well.
