Each member of MLBA have pledged to bring at least three or more blood donors, which could total over 100 donors. Apart from blood donation, we have also decided to do make-up/hair-do for the female inmates of St Anthony’s ashram. This project is one of the many projects that the association has done since their inception- the main objective of forming their association with like minded beauty parlour owners was to fulfill their motto and showcase their unity, by establishing this Association with an objective to unite the beauty parlour owners in and around Mangaluru to achieve their motto and solve our problems. And also to involve in various community projects for the betterment of the society, like Blood Donation Camp and so on.

The main objective of MLBA is to provide better quality of life, and create awareness about health and hygiene in girls and thereby improve their beauty. The members of the Association firmly believe and think that after couple of years of hard work, they have fulfilled fulfill their objectives and motto. The Salient features of our objectives/motto are :To unite the girls and providing them with opportunities to exhibit their skills; Providing a platform for the girls to showcase their abilities; To strive for the up-liftment of those involved in the trade without any monetary benefits; To organise training programmes and workshops to beauticians to develop their skills; and striving for the well being of women and girls.

Blood is something we all expect to be there for us when we need it, yet very few of us come forward actively to give blood – many people would not be alive today if it wasn’t for the generosity of blood donors. Most people can give blood, but all donors have to meet the eligibility criteria before their blood is accepted to ensure there’s no risk of us harming you or the patients who will receive it- so make sure you can donate. Blood donation is the easiest and the most powerful way to make an impact. With each unit you give, you can save up to 4 lives!
