IMPHAL: Under the guidance of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Manipur Prant, Seva Bharati, Manipur and National Medicos Organization (NMO), Manipur jointly organised a blood donation camp under the banner Rakta- Dhara on the occasion of 163 years of ” Siphai Vidroh” ( 1st War of Indian Independence) at RIMS Blood Bank on Sunday.
The blood donation camp was organised in view of the shortage of blood in this challenging time of Covid-19 pandemic. The blood donation camp was organised for five consecutive Sunday beginning from May 10, 2020 and it was supposed to end on June 7 but after the first Sunday the camp was halted for some time because of lockdown and curfew and the donors faced inconveniences in attending the camp. Later, it resumed again from June 21 and continued every Sunday till July 12. Altogether 119 blood units were collected during the blood donation camp.
