Showed her undying love for her brother and bond between siblings
Amid Coronavirus pandemic, people celebrate the auspicious Rakshabandhan festival with safety measures. However the scare don’t dampen the spirits as sisters tied the Rakhis on the wrists of their brothers and show their love. One such incident came to light in Vadodara where a sister arrange a plasma donor for her brother who is battling with Covid 19.
The woman approached the Chhatra Sansad who held a Blood Donation Camp at Gorwa where over 50 people donated blood in the fight against the Corona virus. Her brother had recently tested positive for COVID-19 and to aid his recovery, the doctors told her to arrange a plasma transfusion. Unfortunately, she couldn’t find a donor nor an Organization that had plasma reserves containing antibodies to fight the virus.
As Chhatra Sansad is conducting Blood Donation Drive in Vadodara, the woman approached them to help her in this endeavour to arrange for plasma as a symbolic Rakshabandhan gift for her brother. Umesh Machi has kindly agreed to donate his plasma to help her brother in his recovery.
Inspired by her courage and her love for her brother, Chhatra Sansad decided to do something even more meaningful, and in association with Vadodara Municipal Corporation and Indu Blood Bank, decided to hold Plasma Donation Drives across Vadodara.
The plasma will be collected from recovered patients, rich in antibodies required to eliminate COVID-19. The plasma will be collected by Chhatra Sansad and Indu Blood Bank and will be handed over to VMC for distribution.
“We are truly humbled by the quest of one common woman and her undying love for her brother, which has resulted in an entire Plasma Drive, helping save countless lives, all of whom now have a much greater chance of recovery and return to normalcy. This goes to show what can be achieved simply through the power of love and the bond between siblings,” said team CS while extending their wishes on Rakshabandhan.
