Sewa’s Blood Donation and Bone Marrow Registry drive’s sole purpose is to work with Australian-Indian communities and other like-minded organization, to spread awareness on benefits of Blood Donation, Use and need of blood and its components in Australia.
Sewa work with various like-minded organization to drive awareness on Blood and Plasma donation with vision to drive mass donation across Australia under one banner to echo the Hindu principle of “VASUDAIVA KUTUMBAKAM”.
In 2015, Sewa actively teamed with HOTA forum members to drive Blood Donation & Bone Marrow registry’s under one banner to prove to the fact, “sangathan mein shakti hai” (strength lies unity), where various members of HOTA (Hindu Organisations, Temples and Association) joined hand together to drive awareness of “SAVING LIVES”.
This is a greater vision of Sewa, aligned to vision of HOTA forum members, of uniting all Hindu Organisations to drive Blood donation under one banner with a sole objective of bring multiple like minded organization under one umbrella to drive a vision of Whole World is One big family (“VASUDAIVA KUTUMBAKAM”) .
