Five tests will be conducted for the donors free of cost- HIV, Hepatitis A and B, syphilis and malaria

North South University Social Services Club (NSUSSC) has arranged a "Blood Donation" drive at the North South University (NSU) campus Tuesday. The drive will continue until July 26 at the NSU boys' and girls' lounges.

Like previous years, NSUSSC is collaborating with Quantum Foundation to help people in need of blood. Doctors and experts from Quantum Foundation will oversee the drive.

Interested blood donors will need to go through a physical checkup, where their BMI and blood types will be recorded. 

Five tests will be conducted for the donors free of cost- HIV, Hepatitis A and B, syphilis and malaria.

The donors will also be provided with a free membership card from Quantum Foundation, where they will be able to collect blood of any type at any given time, if available.

NSUSCC will also ensure all blood bags are properly screened before any blood transfusion. The organizers have invited everyone to come forward and participate in the drive.
