It is remarkable that these camps have been organized every
year since 1987 in the month of April to commemorate the
martyrdom of Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji the then head of the Sant
Nirankari Mission and other devotees of the Mission. Since
2009, these camps are organized almost round the year starting
from Manav Ekta Diwas on April 24. This year, on a single day on
April 24, the Mission organized 71 blood donation camps in the
country including 9 in Maharashtra. The target this year is to
hold more than 400 camps in the country.
