The Blood Donation initiative started by the Association has received overwhelming response from the members. More than 500 members have already donated blood in the camps organized at Chennai, Tiruvarur, Tiruchirapalli, Madurai and Coimbatore so far. The response to the blood donation camp by our members today is over whelming and I thank those who contributed for this noble cause. We have also received expression of interest from members to include their names in the Blood Donor’s list. Office bearers are requested to spread the message and encourage members to enlist their names in the BLOOD DONOR’s List.
