Tehreek e Hurriyat Kashmir today officially inaugurated ‘Syed Ali Geelani Blood Bank’ at its central office Hyderpora here. On the eve of World Blood Donors Day, hundreds of volunteers and youth donated their blood at makeshift camp for said blood bank.
“Syed Ali Geelani who is under continuous detention inaugurated the ceremony and addressed the occasion. While inaugurating the function, Syed Ali Geelani announced that similar blood bank would be set up in Azad Kashmir and that in future blood camps would be organised at different district head quarters in state,” the spokesman of TeH said in a statement issued here.
Addressing on the occasion, Geelani hailed the enthusiasm among youth and expressed his desire to donate his blood but keeping his age and multiple ailments in consideration, doctors attending the camp prevented him.
Geelani in his address while highlighting the need and aims for establishing blood bank, said that Jammu & Kashmir figures among the conflict zones and at tense situations and in emergencies , the desperate people and injured persons need blood and our assistance and added we want to come to their rescue and mitigate their sufferings.
