PATNA: Ahead of Na­tional Blood Do­na­tion Day on Oc­to­ber 1, St Xavier’s Col­lege, Digha Ghat, or­gan­ised a blood do­na­tion camp on Satur­day. Around 51 students and staff mem­bers do­nated blood at the camp.

Dr Reena and her nine­mem­ber team from Kurji Holy Fam­ily Hospi­tal con­ducted the camp, in which third year students showed more ea­ger­ness to do­nate blood.

“I had ear­lier do­nated blood with a lot of hes­i­ta­tion. But, now I have no fear. I have do­nated blood seven times so far and I find it healthy,” said third year students Akhilesh, Gau­rav Daniel and Shrey Sa­gar who do­nated blood at the camp held out­side the col­lege.

The sec­ond year students also showed en­thu­si­asm af­ter get­ting over their ini­tial fear. Gi­tan­jali said she was afraid of do­nat­ing blood last year.

“This year, how­ever, I am en­thu­si­as­tic,” she added. Students Mandip Singh, Sikan­dar, Aisha, Neha, Nancy Chan­dra, Rahul Singh and oth­ers who do­nated blood said that if their blood could save some­body’s life, there was no harm.

Prin­ci­pal of the col­lege Fr T Nishaant and vice prin­ci­pal Fr Sushil Bilung en­cour­aged the students at the camp. Staff mem­bers BN Chaud­hary, Fr Jose Kala­pura, along with mem­bers of the col­lege’s aware­ness com­mit­tee Kal­pana Ku­mari and Ajay Ku­mar Singh, over­saw the pro­ceed­ings.
