Convalescent Plasma Donation Program by Nation Next Foundation and Prawah

Keeping in mind the growing COVID-19 cases and the need for plasma for critical patients, Nation Next foundation has teamed up with Nagpur NGO Prawah for Convalescent Plasma Donation Program. 

While speaking to Nation Next, Ketki Arbat, Founder, Prawah, said: The primary objective behind the Convalescent Plasma Donation Program by Nation Next Foundation and Prawah is to encourage COVID-19 survivors to donate plasma and to help COVID-19 patients in need to plasma. Ketki urged survivors to come forward t o donate plasma. 

Informing about Convalescent Plasma Therapy, Dr Ravi Wankhede, Director, Jeevan Jyoti Blood Bank, told Nation Next: Convalescent means: The period where the patient has recovered but is still under observation by the doctors. Plasma is a yellow liquid that can be donated by a COVID-19 survivor. If we are able to help a person recover from a disease through plasma, it is called as therapy. 

Speaking as to how plasma can help a person recover from a disease, Dr Wankhede said: ?When we have infection, antibodies get created in our blood. When the patient recovers, these antibodies stay in our blood for a long time. This can be of advantage for people who suffer from severe disease. Once, a donor donates plasma. 200 ml of plasma can be used to help two patients.

Eligibility criteria for a COVID-19 survivor to donate plasma: 

– The COVID-19 survivor should be more than 18 years of age and should weigh more than 50 kg
– The COVID-19 survivor must have a positive test report and should have some symptoms when tested positive 
– For donating plasma, the COVID-19 survivor should be off medication and should not have symptoms for at least days after recovery. So, ideally a person can be donor after days of testing positive for COVID-19

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
