Blood Donation Programme
Parvathipuram Revene Division Consists of 8 Tribal Sub-Plan Mandals, 3 Municipal and 4 Rural Mandals. Thus there exist 15 Revenue Mandals and with in which Agency area by name Parvathipuram and Salur Mandals. Parvathipuram Agency consisting of about 260 villages which spreads in GLPuram, Kurupam and Komarada Mandals. Salur agency consisting of 125 villages which spreads in Salur and Pachipenta Mandals.
Most of the rural folk especially the Tribal folk in the agency and Sub-Plan areas of the Division doesn’t know about the maintenance of Blood Banks which secure Blood from the Doners and supply to the needy at times of need. There is a Blood Bank established by the Red cross Society in the Area Hospital, Parvathipuram in the year 2007 with 200 units capacity at a time, which either the remote agency Tribal people or Rural folk do not know. Because of the innocence of the Tribal’s, and other backward class people in the remote areas, human mortality for want of Blood was rampant in those pockets.
On induction of our Charitable Foundation, we have been continuously conducting awareness camps in all the remote and Agency, Tribal sub-plan and other rural areas about the functioning of Blood Banks at Parvathipuram and the ways and means of their better utilization by the needy especially Tribal people of this area . Prior to induction of our Foundation the annual drawl of Blood by the Tribal Folk from the Blood Bank was 80 to 100 units only and after conducting awareness camps, the drawl of Blood by making better use of the Blood Banks functioning in Parvathipuram increased upto 250 to 300 units per annum.
Our Abhimani Charitable Foundation achieved the progress in the motivation of Blood donors and utilization of Blood being collected by Blood Banks in Parvathipuram, Vizianagaram.
