We are all born with the ability to change lives, whether it is through our words, beliefs or acts of kindness. And they say, you don’t have to be a doctor to save lives – you can save three by donating one pint of blood! Over the past 2 years of the pandemic wreaking havoc across the globe, we have had to witness and possibly even bear the sufferings and loss of our loved ones, not just to the virus, but to multiple health complications from depression to heart conditions. The sudden rush to the hospital, frantic calls to friends, relatives, medical facilities, etc. are all too familiar and painful to recall, as we do everything in our power for those we care about. But sometimes our expected miracles become imagined mirages when we cannot find the right blood group from the blood banks or reach a potential donor in time. And the American International University – Bangladesh (AIUB) has always encouraged its students and staff to serve its community, working towards ensuring that no one has to endure alone. In an united effort to help those in need, the AIUB Social Welfare Club, ‘Shomoy’, organized one of their regular activities, the Blood Donation Campaign 2022, together with the Bangladesh Thalassemia Samity Hospital (BTSH). On the 24th of July 2022, the day-long program was inaugurated by Mr. Pius Costa, the Registrar of AIUB, along with academic and administrative officials of the university, and the representatives from BTSH. Participants were provided with refreshments and issued donor cards for their contributions, in hope of enabling them to continue supporting the cause further. Around 165 donors did their part and contributed towards giving others a new lease on life. AIUB takes great pride in its students for being socially responsible and proactive in bringing about the change they want to see in the world, not just today, but for the days to come. It is these initiatives and involvement that bind us together and keep humanity, and us humans, alive.
