The Blood Donation Camp, organized by the Charaiveti Club of GITAM, Hyderabad, witnessed an overwhelming response from students and staff. The event was held under the theme “Donating blood can make a big difference; give the gift of life to others,” to educate students about the significance of their contributions to society.

He commended their initiative and encouraged voluntary donors to actively participate in similar events. Varma emphasized the importance of regular blood donation and applauded all the blood donors for their selfless act.
