Kiran Verma promoting blood donation

A Delhi-based social worker, who is on a 21,000-km walk across three countries to spread awareness about blood donation, reached Mizoram capital Aizawl on December 19.

38-year-old Kiran Verma started his 21,000 kms walk for blood awareness in India from Thiruvananthapuram on December 28, 2021.

When he reached Aizawl on December 19 from Churachandpur, Manipur, which took him nine days, he has covered a total of 18,000 kms.

“I am seeking appointment with Mizoram chief minister on Wednesday. After meeting him, I will proceed towards Tripura,” Verma said.

“This walk is going to be the longest blood awareness campaign ever by an individual in the world,” Verma said, adding that “nobody should die waiting for blood in India after December 31, 2025”.

Highlighting certain landmark activities during his mission, Verma said on June 19 this year he walked in three countries – Bangladesh, India and Nepal – in a single day through the Siliguri corridor.

To support his walk, 126 blood donation camps were organised in different parts of the country in which over 26,722 units of blood were collected. More than 9000 individual donors have also donated blood in their personal capacity at different blood banks across India and abroad to support this campaign, he added.
