Voluntary blood donation conducted

LEKHI, Jan 19: Over 40 people donated 24 units of blood during a blood donation camp organised here jointly by the Venkateshwara Open University and the Arunachal Voluntary Blood Donor’s Organisation on Friday.
The camp was organised in collaboration with the State Blood Transfusion Council, Ramakrishna Mission Hospital, the Venkateshwara Group of Institutions (VGI) and the Venkateshwara Open University.
AVBDO Chairman Ramesh Jeke informed that the demand of blood in the state’s hospitals is still very high and the supply of blood units from blood donors is not sufficient.
