“Be a blood donor, All it costs is a little love”

The day has come to remember our respected the late Shri P.D.Agarwal, the founder of TCI, ABC India, Bhoruka and GATI, on his 32th death anniversary, through his mission of eradicating blood shortage in the time of need. It is common knowledge that donation of blood is of immense worth to protect  lives .Let us remember one unit of blood would save three lives..!In changing times we should be determined to come forward to serve a great cause to donate blood to protect many ailing persons or  accident victims or those who want to survive. The donors may feel it great when they find gratitude in the form of tears among the family     members of the victims.

One of the main objectives of the late Shri P.D. Agarwal Blood Donation Drive is to eliminate blood shortage, specifically during the festive season (September and October) ,which is a recurring problem every year. To make this vision a reality, we have made it our mission and, thus, we have chosen his death anniversary to conduct the Blood Drive all over India.

This year also, we are conducting the P.D.Agarwal Blood Donation Drive on 17th of September, 2014 , and request all of you to take active part/participate actively role in this year’s Blood Drive.

We eagerly look forward to your collective response in turning this dream into a reality. Let us come forward and join hands to make the P.D.Agarwal Blood Drive a huge success in 2014 as well!

The blood donation should be made to an organization who will be of support at the time of need. To wipe off the scarcity of blood and ensure availability of safe and quality blood and other blood components, round the clock and throughout the year. This will lead to alleviation of human sufferings, even to the far-flung remote areas in the country

Brief note about  Late Shri P.D. Agarwal
We would like to inform you that our founder, the late Sri P.D. Agarwal, is not only the founder of several eminent groups like TCI, ABC India, GATI and Bhoruka; but also catalyzed changes in various sectors that even today have a positive impact on the country and our society. He is considered the founder of the Indian transport industry. His contribution to our society extends beyond transport to spheres, such as education, health care and women empowerment. His initiative to eradicate blood shortage in early eighties is one such example.

In 1982, he founded the first non-governmental blood bank (Bhoruka Blood Bank) in Kolkata to ensure round the clock availability of blood for anyone in need. Today Bhoruka Blood Bank is a benchmark in the field of voluntary blood donation nationally and also a pioneer in the formation and training of groups that use Bhoruka's self-sustaining models of treatment of hematological disorders.

Continuing to fulfill his vision of eradicating of blood shortage in India since 2008, we are observing his Death Anniversary (17th September) through an annual blood drive conducted with support of organizations and people close to him. One of the main objectives of the P.D. Agarwal Blood Drive is to eliminate blood shortage specifically during the festival season (September and October) which is a recurring problem every year.
