Agartala, April 04, 2023: Transport and Tourism minister Sushanta Chowdhury on Tuesday attended a mega voluntary blood donation camp organized on the occasion of Brahma-Shitala-Kali Puja at Krishnatali under 10-Majlishpur assembly constituency on Tuesday.
Addressing at the inaugural ceremony of the camp, Chowdhury said “Standing by the side of a person in danger and extending a helping hand is the identity of an ideal person. Every moment hundreds of people are losing the battle of life for a single drop of blood, it is not desirable for us in any way. By donating blood voluntarily, we can save many precious lives. Our voluntary blood donation can save the life of a dying person.”
“Although many achievements have been made in modern medical science, artificial blood has not yet been discovered. As a result, all those patients who need extra blood for some reason, then that blood has to be collected from the body of healthy people. This is why blood donation is considered a great donation.”
“At present, the amount of blood stored in government blood banks is much less than the demand. Buying blood privately costs a lot of money. Moreover, there is a fear of getting infected with pathogens. That’s why we all have to take initiative and organize blood donation camps regularly”, he added.
Minister said “Perhaps the noblest and most sacred of the interdependent dutiful programs of civilization is the saving of human life. But it is not always possible for us to directly save the life of an innocent person. So perhaps the most significant and important act in this regard is blood donation.”
“Many people die every year just from crisis of blood. So if we are able to save the lives of those people in exchange of a very small amount of blood in our body, then it will be the ultimate goal of civilized human life”, he also added.
Chowdhury also thanked all the blood donors who donated blood in this great blood donation camp today for their service and mentality. He wished good health and bright future to all the blood donors attending the blood donation camp.
