Around 173 donors received certificates, identification cards, crests and medals in recognition to their contribution to humanity.
Professor M Nizamuddin Ahmed, Chairman of Palliative Medicine Department of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) delivered the welcome address with Chief Coordinator Quantum Blood programme Madam Nahar Al Bokhari in the chair.
On the occasion, Tareq Kuddus spoke on behalf of blood donors and thalassemia patient Sanjida Sumaiya Akter Sumi on behalf of recipients, said a press release. -UNB
