Sports fraternity comes forward to support ABTYP’s Mega Blood Donation Drive across India on 17th September, 2022!
AKHIL BHARTIYA TERAPANTH YUVAK PARISHAD (ABTYP), the youth wing of Terapanth Jain Shwetambar Samaj, is committed towards holding Mega Blood Donation Drive MBDD – a simultaneous nationwide collection on 17th September, 2022 with the hope to make India blood sufficient by raising a massive amount of blood donations.
With the vision to organize the largest nationwide blood donation drive on the occasion of our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday – 17th September, the sports fraternity has come forward to support ABTYP’s noble mission of mega blood donation drive thereby creating impact in 20 states, 1000 cities with 2000 camps and the combined efforts of more than 25000 volunteers, many NGOs and the government’s support.
From Yuvraj Singh to PV Sindhu, Parupali Kashyap to Gopichand, eminent sports personalities have wholeheartedly joined the noble cause of creating awareness around the nationwide organisation of the mega blood donative drive, urging people to come forward in huge numbers and support it.
Hitesh Bhandia, Chief Convener – MBDD, says, “We are grateful to our respectable sports personalities for coming forward and helping us in our aim to create massive awareness across the country for voluntary blood donation and motivate first time donors to come forward and contribute with the same zeal as before. We hope to create a wave of massive awareness and encourage Indians to make every drop of blood count, to give life, a gift only your blood donation can give.”
Pankaj Daga, President ABTYP adds, “Over the last few years, we have been consistent with fulfilling our aim to launch blood donation campaign across the country and this year too, the response has been truly encouraging. We hope this year’s MBDD becomes a huge success.”
ABTYP has consistently conducted drives time and again by conducting the longest blood donation drive in the world of a continuous 366 days, a task which in no way was easy but made history nonetheless. In the last 10 years, ABTYP collected more than 500000 units of blood, set up 2500+ camps and collected 2000+ plasma donations during covid 19 which in turn saved a mass number of lives, while earning us special recognition from the Prime Minister, chief ministers, and union ministers. ABTYP was also able to garner attention from various Bollywood celebrities, authors, sportspersons, and bureaucrats for our philanthropic activities.
