In a remarkable event to raise awareness of the need for blood donation, Blood Donor’s Kerala - Kuwait chapter (BDK, Kuwait) celebrated the world blood donor day by organizing a successful blood donation camp at Central Blood Bank, Jabriya, Kuwait. About 135 volunteers from the various sects of Indian expatriate community in Kuwait has donated the blood at the Central Blood Bank , Jabriya under the banner of Blood Donors Kerala Kuwait chapter , a non-profitable and voluntary social media group actively working 24 hours to provide quality donor service for the needy. Despite being a working day and the blood donation drive organized at night the volunteers who donated their blood and platelets had out-numbered the expectations of the organizers.

BDK Kuwait celebrated its one year of services in Kuwait with a cake cutting ceremony done by Sri. Murali Panicker (President, BDK Kuwait) and Fr. Shaji P Joshua (Vicar, St. Basil Orthodox Church, Riggae). BDK has honoured Sri.

In the past one year BDK has donated more than 500 units of blood by conducting blood donation camps in association with Kuwait Central Blood Bank and various charity & welfare organizations in Kuwait.
