The Rotaractors of the Excel group of institutions sponsored by RC Komarapalayam, RID 2982, came in large numbers to donate over 380 units of blood at Mahadaan, a mega camp held each year to mark the World Rotaract Week. Last year, they donated over 470 units of blood.
The college principal and faculty too came forward to donate blood and set an example to their students. “Over 500 Rotaractors from seven Rotaract clubs at this institution have taken up a large number of service projects such as tree plantation, collecting plastic waste on the campus, organising health awareness sessions, visiting old-age homes and vocational centres for the disabled and presenting them with gifts and nutritious food,” says Prof G Sampath, Rotaract Coordinator at RC Komarapalayam.
A series of four blood donation camps were held by the Rotaract clubs at their seven group colleges — Excel College of Engineering and Technology with the support of Salem GH Blood Bank; Naturopathy and Yoga Medical College (Supreme Blood Bank, Erode); and Excel Business School, College of Commerce and Science, College of Architecture, and College of Education (Erode GH Blood Bank); and Excel Engineering College (Sivaramji Blood Bank, Salem).
