Sunday 15th July 2012 ... The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures...
The temple held its fifth successive donation session on 11 March 2012. The locality of the temple always makes the blood donation sessions here an opportunity for a veritable feast of social interaction between different sectors of the community to come together for a single purpose.
This was evident by the wide variety of back grounds and ages of the donors.
There are various reasons why people give blood and it was interesting and inspiring to learn from some of those attending the blood donation session at the temple and give their personal reasons. Some of the reasons are shown in the photographs.
But despite the mult-farious reasons noted there was a common theme amongst all donors...the possible saving of a life for such little inconvenience which was made all the more easier by the temples local session...and the smiles with which they were welcomed as friends by the temple volunteers. The underlying sentiment was “The same blood that runs through my veins and arteries runs through yours.”
