Calpine Group, in association with the student body of IIMK, Infopark and BookMyConsult, organized Organ and Blood Donation Awareness Campaign to improve cognizance about the same. The campaign was conducted as a part of the Onam Celebrations on 24th August 2015, at the Athulya Auditorium, Infopark.
The event was inaugurated by Dr. Abraham Varghese (Vice President-IMA Kerala State), who was eloquent on the benefits of blood donation, and appreciated the huge turnout at the blood donation camp conducted earlier in the day. Mr. A. Vasanth Shenoy (Joint Secretary , SORT), cited the necessity and significance of organ donation, as he recalled interacting with the families of a number of people whose lives were saved, thanks to the invaluable gift given by many organ donors and their families. He also spoke about how, if every Infopark employee could register as an organ & blood donor, thereby increasing the donors’ list by many folds.
Mr. Jijo G John (CEO, Calpine Group) launched a new app supporting the venture, which helps connect blood donors and blood banks with those in need of blood during a medical emergency. The mobile app named “Blood Search” is developed by Calpine Group and it enables individuals and blood banks to register as blood donors. The app is a part of the company’s CSR activities.
