M'luru: Blood donation camp at Mount Carmel Central School gets good response

Media Release

Mangaluru, Aug 27: 'Service to humanity is service to God'. The Mount Carmel Central School organized a blood donation and health check up camp on 27th of August, 2017, as one of the 10 point Programmes of the Decennial Year Celebration, to set an example to our budding students in community service involvement.

Sunday morning of August 27 when the parents and well wishers of MCCS woke up with the lark instead of taking a walk to the park, they came all enthused to the call of MCCS blood donation drive in association with A J Hospital and Institute of Medical Science.

Along with the blood donation drive, awareness was created to pledge the organs and stem cells as well.





The camp commenced with a prayer song thanking God for the blessing of good health and for granting us a heart of kindness to answer to the call of giving life to others. Principal Sr. Melissa welcomed the gathering with mixed emotions of joy and gratitude. She cited ‘Blood is our Prana and to share the Prana with others is nobility. Give, for you are given to give.’

Guest of honour, celebrity Soujanya Hegde who won the Mrs. Popular at Haute Monde Mrs India Worldwide 2017 pageant, held in Delhi on August 5 said that at MCCS education has gone beyond books, in organizing this blood donation drive and was happy to be a part of MCCS family. Dr Prashanth Marla, managing director of A J Hospital and Research Centre, the Chief Guest of the day, cited the advantages of blood donation. He also said as we are diligent in our vehicle and property insurance, we also need to be more diligent in our annual health check up. He created awareness about organ pledging and hoped for better response for this noble cause too.

The programme concluded with vote of thanks delivered by Leena Jose. Philomena Pinto compeered the programme with sensitivity.

There was good response from staff, parents, well wishers and neighbors for blood donation. More than a hundred registered and donated blood, while some of them returned disappointed as they were not fit to do so. Around 30 pledged for Organ donation and some others for Stem cells donation while many availed of the benefits of general health checkup. It was satisfying to see so many responding to this humble call of MCCS. The saying goes true, ‘Blood is meant to circulate. Pass it on.’ May be we have done little today to save a life, but surely it will save someone’s life in a greater way tomorrow. The blood donation camp winded up around 2 pm. We appreciate the whole hearted cooperation rendered by our staff, student leaders and PTEC members in the successful organization of the event.

Being the decennial year of the School, we pledge to continue our journey as a pioneering and a progressing educational institution, keeping community we serve at heart.
