It began at around 10:30am and continued up to 3:30pm, with a steady stream of donors throughout. The venue was abuzz with young IILM students sitting with each other, happy to be able to play their part in lending a helping hand to people in the region. Making it more enthusiastic Faculty and Staffs of IILM Community participated and donated the blood for the noble cause of society. It was great to see people more than pre-registration numbers appearing at the venue, which stretched and encouraged our will to contribute and participate more for social cause.
Core Volunteers team comprising students from PG1 and PG2 together with rotary staffs and doctors ensured that everything was healthy, hygienic and properly done with correct timing. Donors were well examined before donation about their health needs and then forwarded ahead to donate the blood. Out of 100 registration 32 were rejected due to health cause.

After donating blood, Donors were taken care by volunteers so that they could lie down and recuperate for a while before they leave venue.
