The camp saw collaboration between teams from GIMS and Kailash Institute of Nursing and Paramedical Sciences being lead by Dr Shalini Bahadur, Incharge blood bank and Professor Pathology and Mr Sandeep Goel and faculty members of Kailash. A very enthusiastic response was seen among the budding students of the institute both boys and girls who turned up to donate blood. The first donation was rendered by Mr Sandeep Goel.
