The Social Engagement Wing of the Carey Society organized a life-saving Blood donation camp on 20.1.2012 at the Charles Ranson Hall in the UTC.

The programme started at 2 pm with a short official gathering, led by the social engagement coordinator Mr. Rohan. The UTC Communication department lecturer Fr. Jerry Kurian shared a few important thoughts to motivate the donars and the medical officer Dr. Athoshi Sinha encouraged the gathering to save lives. After that the guests were honored by the organizers and then the donors started donating blood. Around 50 students, maintenance staff and others donated blood through this special blood donation camp. The success of the programme was largely due to the awareness created and the number of first time donors who came forward to donate blood.
