Haflong, June 12 : To mark the 13th World Blood Donor Day, a blood dotion camp was organized by NGO Dawns of Tomorrow Society (D.O.T.S) on Sunday at the Civil Hospital, Haflong.
Around 40 units of blood was collected through the camp and handed over to the hospital. In keeping with the theme ‘Blood connects us all’, people of Dima Hasao District, irrespective of tribe, religion, caste and creed, voluntarily doted blood and contributed towards saving lives. Each donor was presented a badge by D.O.T.S to display that he was a hero and had contributed to save a life.
Other NGOs like Changes Society and AROH also participated in conducting the camp. As always, Assam Rifles provided the necessary assistance for the camp and lived up to being ‘Friends of the Hill People’. Few personnel also doted their blood.
