There is no substitute for human blood. Every year millions of people donate blood around the globe and it saves someone’s life. Blood is scarce.  If you are in good health, at least 17 years old, and weighs at least 50 kg’s, then you can donate blood. It takes around 56 days for you to be fit enough to donate again. This is the most amazing thing to do. With your very small effort, it can save someone’s life.


With the Emergency of Blood in the Blood Bank of Nepal Red Cross Society, DWIT Social Service Club organized Blood donation campaign on 17th December, 2015 in cooperation with Deerwalk Corporate Activity Club, at Deer walk Complex, Sifal Kathmandu.  57 people donated the blood and they were both from Deerwalk Services and DWIT.  The event started at 11:45 am. The event was managed by the Social service club of DWIT and 11 volunteers participated from the college. The event lasted for 3 hours and it was successful. Blood donors seemed to be happy and some of them who donated for the first time were feeling proud to donate the blood.  They were provided with special diet after the donation. After the program ended, the volunteers were provide lunch.
