On June 06, 2022, IPAC Foundation and VFAHT in collaboration with the Ghazians Blood Donor Society and D.G. Khan Medical College, D.G. Khan organized a “Safe Blood Donation Camp” in Teaching Hospital, D.G. Khan, to commemorate the World Blood Donor Day, 2022.
Pakistan has very limited resources and supplies in blood banks, whereas the need is much higher. Patients, including children, suffering from hematologic diseases like thalassemia, are always in dire need and require immediate assistance with voluntary blood donations.
The purpose of the camp was to raise awareness about the importance and need for safe blood donation and to collect blood bags for Thalassemic patients. The camp was followed by an awareness drive in the hospital to advocate for safe blood donation practices amongst healthcare workers and the general OPD.
