BIS #2187 BLOOD DONATION DRIVE

Patrick Corda
BORIVILI, DECEMBER 17, 2010: December 16, 2010 was a day to remember and will be marked as a Red Letter day in the history of Bosco Boys Home. The Institute organized a Blood donation camp with the help of Red Cross Blood Bank Mumbai. Our young students of MoRD, Sankalp, and our own Bosco Boys donated their Blood generously.

Present for the occasion Fr. Ajoy Fernandes the Vice provincial spoke about the benefits of donating Blood now and then. He himself has donated Blood several times and encouraged others to do so; He related the incident of his Father when he was sick and required Blood how he came forward to Donate in spite of the Doctor refusing him. More than sixty students donated their Blood and were issued a card by the Red Cross. Fr. Anthony Santarita thanked all the donors and the development staff as well as the staff of Red Cross for introducing this good practice. The institute assured the Red Cross that they will conduct such camps for every new batch of Trainees.

“Blood is Precious Share It.”
