AGARTALA, September 1 (TIWN): A mega blood donation camp was organized by Montessori teachers training school at T.B hall here this morning.

Speaking in the blood donation camp Mayor Dr. Prafullajit Sinha appreciated the initiative of the Montessori teachers training school for organizing the blood donation camp. There is no alternative of blood. For that the Mayor appealed to donate blood as much as possible.

He further said that, of the total requirement of blood during the current financial year (2013-14), 99% was collected through voluntary donation. With the end of the year (financial year) in March, it would be 100%, he added. Saying that the voluntary blood donation movement became a festival in Tripura, the Mayor urged young people to generously donate blood to save lives. A total of 50 people donated blood in the blood donation camp.

According to National Aids Control Organisation, only five states in India have the distinction of over 80% blood collection through voluntary donation against the national average of 55 to 60%. The states are Tripura, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Punjab and Maharashtra.
