Udayan Sangha is well known for social activities. They are working for Thalesemia patients all over the World. At the same time they are arranging blood donation camp regularly to enhance blood banks’capacity. Not only that, they also tries to help poor brilliant students by providing them free books, tuitions and other necessary things. This year honourable Governor of West Bengal has opened their puja and they have donated a sizeable amount in Government’s rescue fund for flood and draught.
