Blood Bank Dimapur in-charge Dr. Temsu, while appreciating the campaign said the blood bank belongs to the public and people should know that, and if it happens to be closed down, there will be suffering, and thus people should come ahead and play their part to keep it available.

He also explained to the donors, who could be seen sitting in school uniforms that they should at least be 18 years and weigh 45 kilograms to be eligible to donate blood, and remarked in a lighter mood that donating blood will make them immune of every disease while the donors laughed at the possible metaphor.

He also read out the number of units collected by such blood donation campaigns carried out by Gorkha Union since last 4 years, which stood at 684 (120 units in 2011, 210 units in 2012, 189 units in 2013 and 165 units in 2014).

This was the fifth consecutive year that the union was involved in such a blood donation campaign. The number of units donated this year at the end of the day was 101 units.
