Overview

The Third Blood Donation camp- "GIVE BLOOD ,SAVE LIVES DURING LOCKDOWN" was organized by JCI Vasco, Zone XI amid lockdown due to corono-virus. Blood donation is one of the most significant contribution that a person can make towards the society.
The camp was held at District hospital,Chicalim,Vasco da Gama in association with Goa Medical College. 24 units of Blood was donated which included jaycees as well as non-jaycees.


Results

During this lock-down there was a increase in requirement of blood and due to this JCI VASCO decided to take up this task and motivate the people and members to donate. The result was tremendous response shown by the general public to donate their blood for a noble cause. collecting 24 units of blood was a great achievement specially amidst the lockdown situation.


Recommendations

We recommend that due to lock-down there is a shortage in supply of blood therefore we recommend other LOMS all over Goa and India to take up this task and help blood banks and hospitals to collect blood that is required by patients of different types.
