GANDERBA: The District Development Council (DDC) Chairperson Ganderbal, Nuzhat Ishfaq; Deputy Commissioner (DC) Ganderbal, Shyambir along with SSP Ganderbal Nikhil Borkar today inaugurated Blood Donation Camp as part of Urs Mubarak of Hazrat Qamar-ud-Din Bukhari (R.A), here.
The camp was organized by Sheikh Ishfaq Jabbar, Ex MLA Ganderbal and Founder Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Jabbar Foundation in the memory of Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Jabbar (EX MLA Ganderbal) and Sheikh Gh Mohd (Ex Defence Director).
To motivate the youth towards blood donation, both Sheikh Ishfaq Jabbar and Khalid Jahangir donated blood during their visit to the camp and other volunteers also donated blood.
Emphasizing the relevance of such camps, Jabbar said, “Blood donation camps have been a regular feature of Shaheed Sheikh Jabbar Foundation but due to the pandemic we were not able to conduct them for the last 2 years”.
He said they are planning to organize at least one blood donation camp every year as blood is a vital resource that can only be donated and not manufactured, adding that the path shown by the Shaheed Sheikh Abdul Jabbar is reaping fruits today.
Ishfaq also expressed gratitude to the District Administration and youth of Shaheed Sheikh Jabbar Foundation for making this blood donation camp a success.
