NUST Community Services Club (NCSC) in collaboration with Jamila Sultana Foundation organized blood donation drive for 2 days on 26 and 27 march 2014 in NUST premises in IGIS ground. Timings were from 10:00 AM till 6:00 PM which were suitable to all departments as students came in any free slot they had in their time table and easily donated blood. Donors were provided with pleasant atmosphere, sanitary conditions and refreshments to handle the dizziness after blood donation. The two day blood donation drive was a success as about 300 blood donations were collected. Jamila Sultana Foundation is a Non‐Profit Organization which deals with children suffering from Thalassemia and provides Blood Transfusion. Jamila Sultana Foundation is currently accommodating 512 Thalassemic children. About 5 out of 100 people are thalassemia patients in Pakistan and considering this horrific fact, we can see the urgency to hold such drives as it is also recommended by doctors that a normal grown up should donate blood every 3 months to remain in good health. These donations will not only help thalassemia patients but patients undergoing cancer treatment or those who were injured in accidents will also benefit from it. NCSC provided not only the students but also faculty of NUST, a perfect chance to save lives. Blood donated by a single person saves up to 3 lives. Apart from NCSC council, course students also volunteered to gain community service hours. It was the combined effort of students, volunteers, club council and faculty members which ended up in getting more than 300 donors in only 2 days.
