Jammu: Chief Postmaster General, J&K, Circle, D V Mahesh said that blood donation reduces risks of heart and liver diseases.
Speaking at the blood donation camp organised by the Department of Posts (DoP), J&K Postal Circle in collaboration with GMC Jammu and Ramadhun Charitable Trust, Mahesh said that donating blood not only keeps a donor fit, but also saves lives during the times of medical exigencies.
"It gives a feeling of satisfaction when you donate blood and blood donated by an individual can save up to three lives, besides stimulating blood cell production," Mahesh said.
He added that donating blood reduces harmful iron stores, lowers the risk of suffering heart attack and keeps the liver healthy.
The CPMG expressed gratitude to GMC authorities and Ramadun Charitable Trust for making the camp a success.
Apart from officers and officials of DoP, around 40 volunteers of the department donated blood during the camp and took pledge to make it a routine exercise as their support towards society as a concerned citizen. (UNI)
