No matter where you are in the world, people maintain a strong emotional attachment to their homeland and mother tongue. Here also, as the event was organized in connection with the birthdate of Kerala state, most of the participants attended the camp in the traditional Kerala attire to reflect their love to the motherland and to highlight the cultural heritage of the state.
Blood donation is definitely a lifesaving mission, but beyond that, it has another significant dimension as well. It conveys a message of unity of human race across all the man made boundaries, which separate the human race into fragments. BDK always emphasizes this message and camps are organized on important dates, in this perspective of social harmony, mutual sharing and coexistence.
Organizations and associations interested in conducting blood donation camps and awareness classes in collaboration with the Central Blood Bank, and those who are in medical emergency, require blood transfusion can avail the free services of BDK, round the clock, at their helpline numbers 6999 7588/5151 0076.
