Nearly 100 Indians donated blood at the Shanghai Blood Center on Saturday, bringing life to patients in need of blood infusions.

In addition to donating blood, some Indians also brought their children to serve as volunteers to guide donors and maintain order.

Many of these Indian minors are 14 and 15 years old and have lived in Shanghai since childhood. They accompanied their parents to take part in blood donation on several occasions, which taught them love and sharing.

The meeting was organized by the Shanghai People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, the Indian Association of Shanghai, the Shanghai Blood Center and other parties.

Local health officials said expatriate blood donation is not only a charity event but also a chance for cultural exchange between Chinese and foreigners.

With the coming of the Mid-Moon Festival, the blood center invited Indian blood donors to enjoy moon cakes, a traditional festival food, and other traditional programs such as paper-cutting, calligraphy, painting and making sachets during the event.
