blood-shortage-in-summer

Data shows that with people out on vacation during summer, the availability of blood decreases. Experts appeal that more and more people should come ahead to organise blood donation camp and do voluntary blood donation during summer.

Ram Bangad, who runs the trust Raktache Nate with a base of thousands of blood donors in Pune, said, “Every summer we face a shortage of blood. People are not aware that every summer brings a shortage of blood. People must be made aware of it. Only then they will come ahead to make a voluntary blood donation.”

Students form the major base for blood donations. But during summer vacation they visit their homes. Also, during summer, holding outdoor camps becomes difficult. Thalassemia and dengue patients face difficulty. Doctors in the case of thalassemia patients need to prioritise patients according to the haemoglobin level.

Vinay Shetty, of Think Foundation, said, “Colleges are shut during this period. Students form one of the major donor groups. But it is absent during summer. Also, the weather is harsh during summer and hosting a camp becomes difficult. “

Shetty further said, “In summer corporate companies, housing societies, religious institutions like temples and churches; should come forward and organise blood donation camps. We organise many such camps on railway stations, as it becomes easy for us. The situation becomes tougher towards the end of May and June. If anybody wants to hold a blood donation camp they can contact me at 9820146448.”
