We received overwhelming response from Govt. authorities & public in communicating dangers of Aids & easy ways to keep it away.

We collected about 5000 bottles of Blood in that campaign & handed over it to various approved Blood banks.
  • Eye Donation Campaign was organised by Madhav Eye Bank under the leadership of Mr. Avinash Sangwai then President of organization & Mr. Nilay Band of NASA. Volunteers visited to all districts of Maharashtra & created awareness for Eye Donation to give sight to needy persons. About 20000 pledges were received from civil society reflecting their willingness to donate eyes after their death, which were handed over to Govt. authorities for execution. A novel experience was witness there, where a couple donated cornea of their 4 year child, died due to brain clot.
