A large number of students turned out to donate blood for the cause to save lives of needy people.

"We had visited the Jorhat Medical College and it was in an appalling state, as the number of blood units was almost nil. In our university, we are trying to inculcate this sacrificial habit. People are ready to save lives by donating blood," said Bobby Borah, Assistant Professor, AAU.
