Winner of Social Contribution Award 2022
Kiran Verma, started his 21,000 kms walk for blood awareness in India from Thiruvananthapuram on 28th Dec 2021.
This walk is going to be the “longest blood awareness campaign ever by an individual in the world” which will run for more than 2 years.
The mission for the walk is to spread awareness about blood donation among people so that “Nobody should die waiting for blood in India after 31st December 2025”.
Due to rising COVID cases voluntary blood donation in India is going significantly down since the last 2 years. This walk is to encourage people even in this tough time to go out and donate blood so that blood banks and hospitals don't run dry on blood.
To support his walk 40-blood donation camps has been organized in different part of the country through which more than 6178 units of blood has been collected.
Apart from the camps more than 1400 individual blood donors have donated blood in their personal capacity in different blood banks in India and abroad to support this walk.
