While people are busy and pre-occupied with their lives and responsibilities, not many can work towards the upliftment of the society. Meanwhile, Sarbjeet Singh of Himachal Pradesh has been setting up blood donation camps for over 13 years now.
Sarbjeet Singh has collected over 20,000 units of blood for Shimla’s hospitals. He said, “It all started 12 years back when I used to volunteer with the local gurudwara and help them organize blood donation camps.”
“Over time, the gurudwara gradually stopped organizing blood donation camps. However, I decided to continue organizing camps on my own”, he adds. He has been organizing the blood camp every Sunday since all these years without fail and all the blood banks in the state have his number to rely on him in emergencies.
Shimla is the capital of Himachal and it is where people from all over the state come for treatment. Therefore, there is always shortage of blood in the main hospitals.
On the other hand, he has been setting up a free canteen for cancer patients since 2014 and drive a free funeral for the poor for the past 10 years.
