“October 16, 2018: ‘Daan Utsav’ – The Social Endeavor Group of TAPMI in collaboration with Kasturba Medical College organized a Blood Donation Drive in the TAPMI campus as a part of Daan Utsav formerly known as Joy of Giving, a festival of philanthropy. India today faces a shortage of over 12 lakh units of blood, which is due to lack of awareness about blood donation. 1 unit of blood can potentially save upto 3 lives. To increase awareness and spread the importance of blood donation, a drive was conducted. The collection drive was a huge success with 115 units of blood collected from the college students and faculties.”
