Blood requirement is an emergency in most conditions and a good number of cases take a jatal turn due to lack of timely blood supply. Hence educating and encouraging all healthy citizens to donate these precious drops was the main motto behind the rally undertaken by students and faculty at 9.a.m. on the same day which began from HIMS premises and marched through the main roads of Hassan. The rally was inaugurated by Dr.Nagaraja Rao, District Health Officer. Through this an attempt at clearing any false belief and stigma attached to donation of blood was made.

The function also included the honoring of 10 volunteers who had donated up to 18 units of blood and rightly disserved recognition. They also shared few thoughts about malpractice associated with donation of life saving fluid and the whole procedure in a normal govt set up.
By the end of the programme our minds too were inspired by life saving miracle that blood donation at the right time could do and we all take an oath to do so whenever the need arises, at least once in a life time.
