A flash mob for awareness of blood donation was held at the same venue, several times during the blood donation camp. The Blood Donation Drive was organized to mark world Rotaract Day. Hundreds of visitors to the malls were contacted personally by Rotracted and they created awareness and need for the blood donation.
The camp was aimed to serve patients who are affected by THALASSAEMIA. Thalassaemia is an inherited blood disorder that causes the body to have less haemoglobin than normal. This blood donation drive helps the patients in their wellbeing by tackling the disease that they have been suffering from.
