Around 120 people came forth to donate blood but only 83 were eligible as per medical tests. Glucose water and apples were provided to all the donors which was donated by Joe Suares, Surathkal. The samples were carefully sealed and transported away, while the volunteers and hospital staff helped in the clean-up the area. Throughout the morning, there were smiles and laughter all around, a true embodiment of what we believe in - selfless service with a smile.
