January 31, 2018, 5:49 pm

Blood Donors Kerala (BDK), Kuwait Chapter, celebrated the 69th Republic Day of India by organizing various activities in Kuwait. On Thursday, 25 January, a Blood Donation Drive was conducted at the Jabriya Central Blood Bank. Despite the busy working day evening, a large number of donors from the NRI community participated in the event and celebrated the Republic Day by donating their blood to the needy in society. The event was inaugurated by renowned playback singer from Kerala, Panthalam Balan.

On the Republic Day, BDK volunteers gathered at the Embassy of India, Kuwait to participate in the flag hoisting ceremony and other cultural programs. They celebrated the Republic day by distributing pamphlets showing the importance of voluntary blood donation.

Blood Donors Kerala, a social media Fraternity; actively works on promoting Voluntary Blood Donation in Kuwait, India, UAE, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Mali, since 2011. The organization brings together voluntary blood donors and those in need of blood onto a common platform. This initiative was started by Vinod Bhaskaran and a small circle of friends, and is now providing approximately 500 Units of blood per day in various hospitals.

The social media fraternity spares their weekends and holidays in actively volunteering for the noble cause.

Kuwait’s leading business house Al-Rashid Travels & Shipping divisions are the main sponsors of the fraternity. 'Yathra Kuwait' social organization of Taxi Operators from Kerala are providing free transportation service to the blood donors as well as Indian Doctors Forum, Music Beats and Darshan Photography are also supporting the activities of BDK Kuwait team. All these programs are organized under the auspices of Central Blood Bank Bank, Jabriya.

Kuwait Chapter had launched it’s a Year Long Intensive Awareness Program on Voluntary Blood Donation, among the public domain in Kuwait as part of our 1st Anniversary in Kuwait; from September, 2017 to August, 2018.

People have insufficient knowledge, diverse attitude and many misconceptions about the blood donation. The donation of blood from young students is preferred because the risk of acquiring the blood transmitted diseases from blood donated by the students is less than other groups.

The campaign includes awareness classes for school students, Social and Cultural Organizations and others in Kuwait. Also, the organization will be conducting information desks and data collection drives in the gatherings and celebrations of Associations, shopping malls, labour camps and private clinics in Kuwait. Indian Doctors Forum, Kuwait will provide necessary support in conducting classes.

Through this campaign, we are aiming to motivate people to donate blood and to urge donors to keep on donating blood on a regular basis and to inspire non-donors to start donating blood.

Those who are in need of blood or wish to donate blood / want to be the part of the noble cause may contact: 6999 7588, 9885 9650 or 5151 0076.
