NCSC Blood Donation Drive 2014 in collaboration with AFIT

Following the tradition of holding two blood camps in a year, NUST Community Service Club (NCSC) held yet another successful 3-day blood donation camp in collaboration with the Armed Forces Institute of Transfusion (AFIT) from 17-19 November 2014 at the helipad ground, NUST H-12 Campus.

The NCSC BDD'14 lived up to the high expectations as a huge number of people turned up to donate blood. There were long queues throughout the day, waiting for their turn to donate blood. Blood samples were taken along with the weights of the donors to ensure eligibility. In fact, the medical staff, headed by AFIT, took all measures to ensure safety of donors. During the donation process, they continuously monitored the donors and gave immediate attention to those who showed any sign of weakness. After the donation, the donors were provided with fruit juice along with snacks. 126 pints of blood were collected (from 84 boys and 42 girls) on just the first day. The second day saw even more volunteers’ queuing to donate blood with over 150 blood pints collected.

While continuing its legacy of gathering maximum number of blood donors from all around NUST during the first two days of the Blood Donation Drive, NCSC succeeded in getting 100 blood donations on the third day of BDD as well, raising the total count to 377. After donating the blood, the altruistic donors got photographed at Pic-A-Booth arranged by NCSC at the camp to show their oneness for humanity and make their act of kindness memorable.

The hardworking NCSC team remained keen and vigilant while on duty and ensured the proper provision of refreshments to the donors. The donors were fully facilitated by the assistive and hospitable doctors on duty who ensured their comfort. The drive was also successful due to the immense support from NUST Administration.

The BDD drive by NCSC proved to be a groundbreaking success as it provided a platform for the philanthropists to gather and put their love for humanity finally into action.
