Sajid Iqbal Foundation organizes blood donation camp
Srinagar, July 29: The Sajid Iqbal Foundation for Peace and Human Rights organized a blood donation camp at Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Soura on Friday.

The event marked the beginning of the Foundation’s ‘Lifeline’ programme which aims to provide assistance to victims of road accidents in Kashmir. Sajid himself was a prolific donor, always ready to donate blood to those in need.
Highlighting the need for Kashmiris to donate blood as an act of social responsibility, Sehar Iqbal, the Executive Director of the Foundation urged youth to come forward and join the movement.
The event was organized in collaboration with the Kashmir Social Workers’ Committee and SKIMS, Soura.
The Sajid Iqbal Foundation has been established to initiate and support civil society initiatives to promote peace, reconciliation and respect for human rights in memory of Sajid Iqbal, a prominent Kashmiri human rights lawyer and youth activist who died in a tragic road accident.
