The Jain International Youth Organisation (JIYO), Kolkata chapter, organized a Blood Donation Camp as part of their pledge to support society. Encouraging the event and furthering this noble cause was the very popular Bollywood actor Sunil Grover. Known for his fabulous comic timing, Sunil cheered the donors who were exhilarated to meet their favourite television and film personality so candidly.
The Camp was inaugurated by Mr Dileep Singh Mehta, Chairman of Multicon Group, Mr. Vinod Dugar – Industrialist RDB Group, Chairman – JITO Eastern Zone and Mr. Sarvesh Jain Industrialist, Chairman – JITO Kolkata Chapter at Zest Fitness Studio. They congratulated JIYO for their effort and emphasised the need to take part in this civil and humanitarian action. The event began at around 10:00 am and continued up to 4:00 pm with a steady stream of donors throughout the day.
Actor Sunil Grover said “I am grateful to JIYO for considering me as a partner to such a great initiative. We know for a fact that every 2 seconds someone somewhere needs blood and that someone can be us too. So to expect blood in times of need we should also donate blood. I would like to use this platform to encourage all my fans and followers to be real life heroes and role models by active participation.”
At the beginning, donors were asked to fill up a registration form, after which they went through a thorough medical check-up of blood pressure, haemoglobin count and weight measurement. There was an arrangement for donors to lie down and recuperate for a while before they left the venue. They were provided with glucose water and refreshment counters were set-up at the venue. Two doctors were present at the venue along with representatives from government blood banks who over saw the entire process. All donors received a certificate of recognition.
