The sports fraternity has come forward to support a Mega Blood Donation Drive across India on September 17, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday,

The Akhil Bhartiya Terapanth Yuvak Parishad (ABTYP), the youth wing of Terapanth Jain Shwetambar Samaj, is committed towards holding a Mega Blood Donation Drive– a simultaneous nationwide collection with the hope to make India blood-sufficient by raising a massive amount of blood donations.

With the vision to organize the largest nationwide drive on that day, the sports fraternity has come forward to support ABTYP’s noble mission, thereby creating impact in 20 states and multiple cities with 2000 camps and the combined efforts of more than 25,000 volunteers, many NGOs and the government’s support.

From Yuvraj Singh to P.V. Sindhu, Parupali Kashyap and Gopichand, eminent sports personalities have wholeheartedly joined the noble cause of creating awareness, urging people to come forward in huge numbers and support it.

Hitesh Bhandia, chief convener – MBDD, says, “We are grateful to our respectable sports personalities for coming forward and helping us in our aim to create massive awareness across the country for voluntary blood donation and motivate first-time donors to come forward and contribute with the same zeal as before. We hope to create a wave of massive awareness and encourage Indians to make every drop of blood count, to give life, a gift only your blood donation can give.”

Pankaj Daga, president, ABTYP, adds, “Over the last few years, we have been consistent with fulfilling our aim to launch blood donation campaigns across the country and this year too, the response has been truly encouraging. We hope this year’s MBDD becomes a huge success.”

ABTYP has consistently conducted drives time and again by conducting the longest blood donation drive in the world of a continuous 366 days, a task which made history. In the last 10 years, ABTYP collected more than 500,000 units of blood, set up over 2500 camps and collected over 2000 plasma donations during Covid 19 which in turn saved a mass number of lives, while earning special recognition from the Prime Minister, chief ministers and union ministers. ABTYP was also able to garner attention from various film celebrities, authors, sportspersons, and bureaucrats for our philanthropic activities.
