Sant Nirankari Mission’s blood drive for Human Unity Day
All over the world, members of Sant Nirankari Mission (SNM), whose head office is in Delhi, India, celebrated Human Unity Day with a blood donation drive. The Sant Nirankari Mission Atlanta (Universal Brotherhood) event was on April 26, 2014, in collaboration with Life South Community Blood Center of Atlanta.
In an overwhelming response from Atlanta residents, people came together for this noble cause and also received the message of Universal Brotherhood. A total of 45 people were able to donate blood; some could not due to health constraints.
Distinguished guests graced the occasion and applauded the efforts made by Mission members. Ms. Harlavleen Bajwa, the chief guest, came all the way from Michigan. Ms. Bajwa is in charge of social welfare for the USA Mission and is part of many such humanitarian events. Other guests included Mr. Subhash Razdan from the Gandhi Foundation of USA, Mr. Dhiru Shah from India Awareness Foundation, Mr. Ashwin Patel from Shakti Mandir, and Prof. N. Komerath from Georgia Tech.
A team of health professionals, including Dr. Pankaj Sethi, Ruchika Sethi, Ms. Manisha Arora, Ms. Ravneet, and Ms. Shabnam from Atlanta, volunteered to give a free health check-up organized by Sant Nirankari Mission. About 65 patients participated while the blood drive was going on and also received advice from the health professionals to improve their health.
The team from Life South Community Blood Center thanked all the members and hoped that the Mission would continue to organize such camps in the future. Mr. Kapil Bhandari, head of SNM Atlanta Branch, thanked the guests and everyone else who took time to help make this event a success. Members of SNM also thanked their guru for teaching them this way of life and were grateful that they could serve humanity and contribute towards this noble cause.
