BELLARY, AUG. 30: “Blood donation is almost like life donation. And those who donate life contribute to fostering a culture of life around”, declared Bishop Henry D’Souza of Bellary.


Bishop D’Souza was inaugurating a blood donation camp held by the Past Students’ Association of St. Joseph’s Boys’ School, Bellary on Aug. 12.


“Life can be like a stagnant pond which only collects; or it can be like a canal which receives and gives. Human beings who have received life from God the source of all life, need to be grateful for the gift of life and share it with others through blood donation for the sick and needy,” urged Bishop.


51 youth, teachers and others who included Fr. O. Vincent and Fr. Ivan Pinto donated blood to the Vivekananda Blood Bank for Poor.

Mr. Basavaraj, Mayor of Bellary City Corporation was the Chief Guest at the inaugural function. He lauded the humanitarian work of the church institutions.


Mr. Madhusudhan, President of the Past Students’ Association of St. Joseph’s Boys’ School led the blood donation camp. He also announced that the newly launched association is planning to take up many programmes for the benefit of the 103-year old school and the public.
