Noida International University’s School of Nursing conducts blood donation camp on World Health Day



Noida : Noida International University’s (NIU) School of Nursing in association with Buddha Charitable Trust recently organized a day-long blood donation camp at Sir Issac Newton building, Greater Noida. The students of the University gathered in large numbers for the noble cause. 83 units of blood were donated carefully, sealed and transported.


The camp began at around 11:30am with the arrival of NIU’s Vice-Chancellor Prof. (Dr) UmaBhardwaj, Pro Vice-Chancellor Prof. (Dr) Parsanjeet kumar, HOD’s Faculties, staffs and most importantly the young and energetic students of NIU. It continued up to 4:00pm, with a steady stream of donors throughout.


The camp was organized and carried out actively and successfully under the supervision of respected Director Sir Prof. (Dr.) Dinesh Kumar and guidance from Ms. Manju Rajput (Vice Principal) along with other faculty and staff members of School of Nursing.


“There has also been a steep decline in the units of blood collected and in the number of bloodcamps since the national lockdown that began in March 2020 – despite an NBTC advisory recommending that donation services continue with precaution. It has also been observed that people above 45 who got both their jabs by now are also not coming out as they feel donating blood diminishes the vaccine’s effect. There are many myths going on regarding blood donation after or before vaccination. So, we have organized this camp to bust such myths,” said Dr. Dinesh Kumar, Director School of Nursing, Noida International University.
