From the Editor’s Desk

Hari Om Friend,

The response to the Mega Blood Donation Camp held on 22nd April 2018 was overwhelming in the true sense of the word. A total of 5838 units of blood were collected in a single day at Mumbai alone. The camp which was started in the year 1999 with vision and inspiration of Dr. Aniruddha Joshi (Sadguru Bapu) has gained in leaps and bounds over the years and has achieved many milestones during the last couple of years.

Facilitating societal growth and progress is also one form of service towards God. The Charkha camp organised at New English School, Bandra was an effort in this direction and this year, the camp witnessed 1178 Shraddhavans who participated in this mega event and contributed significantly towards this noble cause.

This issue of the Newsletter brings us the statistical data pertaining to the current year’s camps of both the events.

Alpha to Omega – the Monthly Newsletter



On the 22nd of April, Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation and Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management along with its sister organisations, Dilasa Medical Trust & Rehabilitation Centre, etc. successfully organised the 19th Mega Blood Donation Camp. The camp happens every year in the month of April.

This Mega-Event has tremendously grown over the years and has garnered blood donors at an increasing rate from the ever-expanding family of the Shraddhavan friends of Dr. Aniruddha Dhairyadhar Joshi (fondly known as Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu). This blood donation camp was initiated by Dr. Joshi himself, in the year 1999 to encourage people to donate blood.

The purpose of organising this camp during the summers is the dearth of blood during this time period. The mega-camp thus helps the blood banks to overcome the scarcity of blood.
What started off with participation of 154 donors in the first year has grown rapidly across the state of Maharashtra. In Mumbai alone, this year, we could collect 5,838 units of blood at the Mega Blood Donation Camp held at Shree Harigurugram. We also collected 2,932 blood units in other locations across the state. The total collection of 39 locations across Maharashtra this time was 8770 units.

The cloth produced after spinning Charkha is used to make blankets and clothes, which are then distributed in the rural areas throughout the year.

The number of our Shraddhavan friends who attended the camp this year was 1178, the number of Charkhas in operation was 70, and the number of Ladis (Hanks) submitted by the participating Shraddhavans were 2028.
