Bi-Annual Blood Donation
Sathya Sai Centre of Solferino has organised its Bi-Annual Blood Donation on Sunday 21 st
October 2018 from 8.00 am to 1.30pm. 87 pints of blood were collected, thanks to the efforts,
dedication and commitment of all its members. Planning for this event started a few weeks ago
with the distribution of letters to regular donors, posters were also placed around solferino and
other nearby areas and announcements made during public bhajans .
Moreover, in line with the ‘Go Green’ initiative of the Sathya Sai International Organisation,
medicinal and decorative plants were distributed to all the donors and plastic cups were not used.
It is important to highlight that the plants and some 100 T-shirts were made available by the
Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development. This service activity has once again
brought all the members to work as one family to help those who are in need as “One pint of
Blood can save the life of an individual” and Sathya Sai Baba says “hands that serve are holier
than lips that pray.” Thank you Lord for using us as your instruments.
