A Voluntary Blood Donation Drive was organized by DHA in collaboration with Indus Hospital at DHA Head Office. This was the first initiative of its kind. The camp for collection of healthy blood organized on modern medical lines as per the international standards was established by Indus Hospital where a large no of DHA officials donated their blood. Administrator DHA Brig Zubair Ahmed set a personal example by being the first person to donate his blood.
The blood donation camp equipped with modern blood screening, diagnostic and medical examination facilities is a unique and first of its kind facility in the country. Dr Uzma Ata, the Administrator Indus Hospital Blood Centre and a clinical pathologist said that a detailed history and physical examination of blood donors including hemoglobin test and blood pressure examination was performed at the camp before accepting the voluntary blood donation.
Dr Uzma added that blood donation does not have any adverse effect on health so blood should be generously donated by all. The camp will function for two days
