Bhavani Foundation organized for blood donation camp

Blood donation is the most valued service to mankind. Nothing is comparable to the preciousness of human blood. “The gift of blood is the gift of life. There is no substitute for human blood. Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors.”

No doubt the first and foremost advantage of donating blood is the exalted feeling of saving someone's life.

Bhavani Group under the banner of Bhavani Foundation along with MGM Hospital, Kamothe & under the supervision of Dr. Seema Gupta jointly organized a Blood Donation Camp as a part of their CSR activity on 04th February 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4p.m at their CBD Belapur office. It was a big success where they surpassed their own record of 93 units of blood last year as compared to 121 units this year. Bhavani Foundation will be conducting the similar activity after 6 month where they are targeting to cross the 200 donors bench mark.

The donors went through a series of medical checkups before donating blood and were given refreshments, a memento and a certificate of appreciation for their service to humanity. 

The Owners, the employees, the working staff along with their friends & relatives willingly came forward to be part of this noble cause & those who were not able to donate were assisting the hospital staff and were trying to make the first time donors comfortable.

The certificate of honor was also given to the blood donors during the function. The youths were called upon to donate blood regularly and in the process help the society.

Bhavani Foundation inauguration at 2 adivasi schools in Khalapur

"It is been noticed that the Schools in the remote areas have always been neglected by the Government. Because of which students are deprived of education. Such schools need helping hand & because of our assistance if somebody is getting benefitted we are always there to help. "

This was the quote of Mr. K D Shetty, President of Bhavani Foundation, during the inauguration function of the 2 adivasi schools at Khalapur where Bhavani Foundation had donated Rs.10 lacs for the repair work.

Due to financial problem the schools were not renovated & also they were non-operating and that is when Bhavani Foundation came in and lend a helping hand for the 2 remote adivasi schools in the district of Khalapur.

In Khalapur district there are 2 adivasi padas namely Bhilvale & Bhilvale Thakurwadi. Located in the remote interior areas these schools were neglected, the roof was leaking ,entrance door had a crack because of which stray animals would easily enter into the premises to take shelter.

The authorities of the school approached Bhavani Foundation for aiding the renovation work. Bhavani foundation readily agreed and they immediately granted an assistance of Rs. 2 lacs. Bhavani Foundation did not just stop with that, they provided complete assistance in the renovation work of the schools. The total expenditure touched Rs. 10 lacs.

Without the assistance of any contractor & with the help of Bhavani Foundation, the village people themselves took the initiative of repairing the schools. The renovation work was completed on 25th Jan 2017 & on 26th Jan 2017 the school was inaugurated.

Bhavani Foundation organized for blood donation camp through TATA Memorial Trust

Blood donation is the most valued service to mankind. Nothing is comparable to the preciousness of human blood. In spite of the rapid and remarkable conquests of medical science today, there is no laboratory that manufactures blood.

Understanding the tremendous importance of blood donation, employees of Bhavani Shipping joined hands with Bhavani Foundation for a noble cause of Blood Donation on 8th August, 2015.  The camp began at 10.00 am and went on till 04.00 pm. The donors were checked for Blood Pressure, weight, Hemoglobin level before the blood was taken from them.  126 members participated and TATA memorial collected 93 units of blood from this camp.

The MSW of Tata memorial Ms Neelam Chaudankar thanked Managing Director of Bhavani Shipping Mr. K D Shetty for such generous donation for noble cause. She said that these 93 units of blood will save 93 cancer patient’s life.
