The partners of the computer and IT fraternity of Jodhpur on 26 Feb 2023 came forward and successfully arranged a grand blood donation camp, which they regard as the most noble social cause for the mankind in need. There were 185 units of blood collected and handed over to the local government medical facilities viz., Umaid Hospital, where it would be utilised for their requirement during maternity and childbirth. Further, several units were handed over to another government hospital called MDM Hospital, where it would be utilised for the patients of thalassemia and others.
The joy of giving the blood inspired the Jodhpur Computer Dealers Association team of young and energetic computer and IT fraternity of Jodhpur. They decided to use and manage this database for any future immediate requirement of blood. The JCDA members are all set to repeat such activity once in a quarter. Members of the age of 55 plus also actively participated in this social cause and donated their blood. It is true and said that people usually donate because it feels good to help others and altruism and volunteering have been linked to positive health outcomes, including a lower risk for depression and greater longevity.
At the blood donation camp, the process was well managed; welcome by applying vermilion and sandal marks on their foreheads as tilak, selfies were taken of the entire team, PIC of individuals was taken and coloured certificate of appreciation having PIC of individual was issued to each donor immediately after the process. JCDA also arranged unlimited fresh juice, Tea, coffee with cookies and snacks for all the donors, medical staff, members and volunteers present there.
