Dr Sharath Kumar Rao in his speech briefed on the importance of donating blood. He also explained how blood helps patients suffering from life-threatening conditions and supports critical medical and surgical procedures. “Donating is a safe process and people should not hesitate to give or receive blood. At Wenlock Hospital we have implemented additional precautions to ensure the safety of the donors and staff. This blood shortage could impact patients who need surgery, victims of accidents and other emergencies, or patients fighting blood cancer. I am happy to see many of you cadets and NCC Officers have come forward to donate blood”, he added

St Aloysius College has the vision and mission of “Creating Men and Women for and with others”, who in turn will be the agents of change in forging an eco-friendly and gender-sensitive society.”
