SNM Melbourne Wins World Blood Donor Day Award

The Sant Nirankari Mission’s Melbourne Branch is among seven winners of the World Blood Donor Day Award – 2009 for Victoria and Tasmania. The award was presented at a special function on June 14, 2009 by Hon’ble Nicola Raxon MP, Minister for Health and Ageing, Australia.

This year more than 90 devotees of the Mission donated their blood at the Pinewood centre over Easter, a time when donation numbers have traditionally been low. About 300 followers of the Mission in Melbourne have been donating blood for the last 13 years. It is the kind teachings of His Holiness Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj which guide these volunteers towards selfless service of the community.
