RAHA, Aug 28 - A blood donation camp was organised by the Youth Congress of Raha constituency in collaboration with Raha unit of NSUI at Raha Sarbajanin Durga Puja premises here on Saturday.
The camp was formally inaugurated by Tapan Sharma, president of Nagaon District Congress Committee.
Inaugurating the camp, Sharma said that blood donation is like giving someone another chance to live as there is no alternative to natural blood.
