Mumbai, 29th December’23: Avaada Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Avaada Group, has achieved a significant milestone in its ongoing mission to uplift lives and contribute to societal well-being. The foundation successfully concluded a blood donation drive in collaboration with Tata Hospital, Asia’s largest cancer care facility, to address Mumbai’s persistent blood shortage crisis.
The blood donation camp, held at the Avaada Foundation Office Premises, witnessed an overwhelming response from the community. A total of 121 blood donors participated, generously contributing units of blood that will directly benefit children and adults battling cancer, providing a substantial boost to their healing process.
In a city where the demand for blood is a critical issue, with Mumbai facing a daily demand of 1000 units, the success of this drive is a testament to the generosity and compassion of the community. The units collected during the drive will significantly contribute to addressing the chronic shortage faced by Mumbai, especially during festive seasons when the demand intensifies.
Vineet Mittal, Chairperson of Avaada Group, expressed his gratitude, stating, “At Avaada Group, we firmly believe in engaging with our community. This blood drive is more than just a collection of units; it’s about making a meaningful impact in our community. We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported this initiative, from Mumbai to Noida and Delhi, making this a successful and impactful drive.”
Some of the highlights from the blood donation drive include:
First-Time Donors: More than 35% of the participants were first-time blood donors, showcasing the success of efforts to engage and inspire the youth to contribute to the community.
Symbol of Generosity: To enhance donor gratification, a unique approach was adopted by placing heart symbols on the donors’ arms, symbolizing the generosity and compassion displayed during the event.
The Avaada Foundation remains committed to its vision of transforming lives for the better and will continue its efforts to address pressing issues in society through such impactful initiatives.
