Annual Blood Drive – November 2018, BAPS, Nairobi
A blood donation drive was held on the 25th of November 2018 at the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir on Limuru Road, Nairobi, Kenya.
BAPS Charities partnered with the Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service (KNBTS). KNBTS works towards creating a pool of low risk donors. Alongside this, it very notably focuses on creating awareness campaigns to educate the public on the dire need as well as destigmatizing the process of blood donation itself.
BAPS Charities, along with its volunteers, hosted this donation drive in order to create a convenient and safe point of donation for the local community. Approximately 110 pints of blood were donated by individuals who took the time to join in this worthy cause.
