Q. How you came across with the idea of Ek Kadam Zindagi Ki Aur?
During the graduation time, an incident occurred which completely shaken my body and mind. From there onwards, Ek kadam Zindagi ki Aur came into scenario. The motive of starting the Ek Kadam Zindagi Ki Aur organization is to provide blood donor details in an emergency to the patient’s family rather than asking for blood in return like blood banks. Anyone can take blood from blood bank in emergency with some official fees but in return they have to provide blood or blood donor in response of blood that has taken by the candidate but at Ek Kadam Zindagi ki Aur, we give blood donor details, his blood group with all other requirements to the candidate.
Q. How do you plan to expand the good work and which part of society are you looking for this?
To expand the good work, I want social volunteers and youth to get involve in this. We organize many blood donation camps where thousands of blood donors have already registered but to reduce the gap between blood on demand and registered blood donors, we need volunteers. It is my request you to all to donate blood every three months as it is beneficial for the heart, facilitate the production of Red Blood cells, and donor would feel satisfied to after saving other’s life.
