The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) officers, soldiers and their family members donated blood on the occasion of the World Blood Donor Day today.

They donated blood during a mega blood donation camp here at Salbagan in Mohanpur.

Beside the mega camp here, three other similar camps have also been organised in the state.

The CRPF group centre organised the blood donation camp under its civic action programme in association with Agartala’s ILS hospital.

The programme aimed at overcoming the crisis of blood that arises during the onset of monsoon season.

Over 200 bottles of blood were collected during the camps which will be used to save the lives of needy patients at the civil hospital.

Many of the donors, who donated blood for the first time, said that they are feeling proud after donating their blood which will save precious lives.

Moreover, the camp was being organised to spread awareness about the killer disease HIV-AIDS among the soldiers.

World Blood Donor Day is being observed across the world today to raise public awareness about the need for safe blood donation.

The campaign theme this year is “Thank you for saving my life”.
