Uphaar victims’ kin hold blood donation camp
EXPRESS NEWS SERVICE
New Delhi, April 14: Monday was another painful reminder for the families of the 59 persons who died in the fire at Uphaar cinema on June 13 last year.
The families organised a blood donation camp just outside the cinema on Monday, and at least 100 persons donated blood in memory of those who died in the tragedy.
The Association of Victims of Uphaar Tragedy (AVUT) have organised seminars and blood donation camps on the thirteenth of every month to sustain their campaign for a safer Delhi. Each of these solemn occasions, they say, is a reminder of the administrative loopholes and negligence, which lead to similar disasters.
AVUT organised Monday’s blood donation camp in a collaboration with the Indian Red Cross Society. The Association says that in future more people should come forward to donate blood, as the Supreme Court has recently issued a ruling against professional blood donors.
“Your contribution will save many precious lives, What could be a better gift that your personal gift to humanity,” says AVUT.
