DC Montessori Sr. Sec. (SMART) School organized blood donation camp


DC Montessori Sr. Sec. (SMART) School organized a blood donation camp in the school premises on 15 October 2017. A team of doctors and nurses  under the supervision of Dr. Neelam Marwaha from  PGI did the necessary arrangements. On this occasion Sh. Jagtar Singh Jagga, the area councillor of ward no. 25, Manimajra, escorted by K L Sachdeva, a social worker and member of our school management committee showed themselves as the chief guests. The director of DCM Schools Mr. B B Gupta was also present to encourage the donors and to ensure smooth functioning of the event.  Generally, it is seen that people do not donate blood in these dates due to their involvement in Diwali preps but PGI Doctors informed the school management that these days are very important as blood is required the most in hospitals for cases like Dengue, etc. People undoubtedly reached up to the expectation and the total no. of donors for the day were 201. All the staff members along with the parents of the students participated enthusiastically for this noble social cause. The enthusiasm and whole-hearted  participation of people made the event a success.
