SMSSS is committed to its mission of empowering the poor and marginalized through the process of capacity building and rights based actions. The Silver Jubilee year and various celebrations in view of it is an occasion for SMSSS to evaluate its interventions so far and design a way forward for the coming years, he said.

Dr Sanjay K S, Chief Medical Officer, Rotary Blood Bank Shimoga, said that if more and more people, especially, the younger generation pledge and come forward to give blood voluntarily, there will be no dearth of blood worldwide.
