BISWA blood donation unit started from 15th Aug 2006 where 22 units of blood were donated by volunteers of BISWA as well as ACC Cement employees, participated in the camp .In this camp the enthusiasm of the female donors was very encouraging , as large number of female donors turned up. The next step, BISWA has in vision to organize blood donation camp at remote rural areas to sensitize village people to donate blood voluntarily and have the aim to meet the blood requirement at the state as well as at the country. We have an ambitious plan to organize voluntary blood donation camps at each district level and to achieve a target of 100 units of blood from each district within 31st march 2007. At village level we feel that most of the people are not aware of their blood groups for which they suffer a lot in case of emergency. BISWA has envisioned to communicate this good message in rural area regarding blood donation and blood group identification camps. BISWA enjoys member strength of 200 volunteers at present to donate blood anytime anywhere and having an aim of enrolling 2000 members within 1 year. Our intention is not only to donate blood but also sensitize people on blood grouping and donation at the rural level, so that more and more people could be prepared as blood donors. It will also support our concept of “Help at Neighborhood”. Since human blood is found with presence of human beings, so making availability of blood by motivating people is our concern . We are in a position to take advantage of BISWA network by taking service of our officials and staffs present in almost all districts of Orissa. And the network may be furthered from district level to block level, Gram Panchayat level and village level. In such a way BISWA network in blood donation could be visible anywhere in its service area.
