Later, I became the NSS volunteer secretary while studying at Central Polytechnic College, Vattiyoorkavu,” Jayesh said, emphasising that his years as an NSS volunteer has helped him do much for the needy patients.

Jayesh is currently working at Coimbatore and he still gets calls from hospitals in Thiruvananthapuram. “My number is available in many hospitals. Since I cannot come, I  arrange some of my friends for the purpose,” he said.

Jayesh received the best blood donor award from Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb a couple of months ago. Along with Jayesh, six others in the State got the award.

Jayesh, who reaches his hometown Attingal every month, now usually donates blood to hospitals in Thiruvananthapuram. “I donate when I am home,” he said.

During his college days as an NSS volunteer secretary, Jayesh inspired more than 150 college students to be part of blood donation. He still keeps encouraging friends to donate blood.
