Udupi: Donation of blood is the greatest donation. There is no equivalent to blood donation. At least three lives can be saved by donating a unit. So donate blood at least once in life, said District Collector Jagdish G.



He was addressing of the District Administration Udupi, District Health and Family Welfare Department, District AIDS Control and Prevention Unit Udupi and Blood Donation Center District Hospital Udupi, St. Mary’s private Industrial Training Institute, Chitpadi under the slogan "Donate at least once in a lifetime” on the occasion of Blood Donation Camp and felicitation programme for highest donors of blood.

He said that young men can donate once every three months and young women can donate every six months, and they can donate 240 times in their lifetime, saving at least 720 lives. Youths are the pillar of the country. In the 73 years since independence, Indians have made their mark in every corner of the globe. Though trained in ITIs, they are unable to stand firm in the workplace. Lecturers should think about this and provide appropriate guidance. And students need to stand on their own time and work for others. He said everyone should work hard to do their best and build a strong country.



District Surgeon Madhusudana Nayak said that no matter how advanced the country is, there is no alternative to blood. In accident and other health related cases, blood can be saved by the person alone. It is a voluntary donation with no intention and nothing, and the young people should be self-motivated and involved in any such activity.

Fr. Valerian Mendonca presided over the program and said that blood donation is so important that blood cannot be made in any laboratory. There is no caste, creed or blood. One donor’s blood is said to be the basis for another’s life.


The most frequent donors in the program - Swapna Suresh, Venugopala, Renu Jayaram, Gurumoorthy and Guruprasad - were honored with the award.

Students, lecturers and staff of Chitpadi St. Mary’s Private Aided Industrial Training Institute were present.

Gilbert Braganza, Principal of the Saint Mary’s Industrial Training Institute welcomed the gatherings. District AIDS Controller Chidananda Sanju SV spoke empirically. Teacher Mahabaleshwar delivered vote of thanks and compered the programme.
