In the lead-up to the event, blood donation awareness drives were organized around the vicinity of Tezpur Medical College and Hospital. These drives aimed to educate and motivate the general public about the importance of regular blood donation. Volunteers and staff engaged with community members, distributing informational materials and answering questions to dispel myths and encourage participation in this life-saving activity.

Attendees were offered free blood grouping services, which proved to be a popular attraction, drawing many curious and interested individuals.

This camp saw enthusiastic participation from doctors, students, and staff of TMCH, all united in their commitment to this noble cause. The collective effort underscored the importance of a robust and readily available blood supply, especially during emergencies.
