RED RIBBON CLUB
The Red Ribbon Club of Kerala State Aids Control Society (KSACS) roofs and encourages blood donors across the state to continue the task and rope in further volunteers in the heroic endeavour. The Kerala State AIDS Control Society (KSACS), the parent organisation plays a pivotal role in the state’s strategy in combating the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It works under the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) which is a part of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of the Government of India.
By encouraging blood donation, the Red Ribbon Club promotes a healthy and safe lifestyle through which one can be made capable of donating and thereby controlling AIDS in the long run.
The Red Ribbon Club executes its objectives by holding donation camps across the college and nearby region. It spreads the best practice message and also sets guidelines and instructs the volunteers in the ‘do’s and don’ts of blood donation. Thereby, helps people to be a regular donor.
The Red Ribbon club was commenced in the college in 2013. From the year onwards blood donation camps are conducted regularly in every year. Apart these, conducted Awareness class on blood donation, AIDS awareness Rally and so on.
