Voluntary Blood Donation Program at IUB
Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) and Bangladesh Thalassemia Hospital jointly organized a voluntary blood donation program at IUB on July 22, 2019. Doctors and medical staffs from Bangladesh Thalassemia Hospital came to IUB to collect blood from the students. They brought the necessary equipment for blood collection including 2 beds, medical kit, bandages and blood pressure machines and set it in the boys’ common room. A huge number of students showed much interest and donated blood for the thalassemia patients. Division of Student Affairs (DOSA) organized this event as a community service program of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award at IUB. The blood that they received from the students will be distributed among the poor thalassemia patients for free of cost at their hospital.
