NDO – Activities under the trans-nation Red Journey blood donation campaign are being held across localities, aiming to attract attention to the humanitarian movement from the public.

Thousands of people, including many soldiers, students and locals, donated their blood during the event, named “Sac Do Tay Do” (Red Colour of Tay Do), held in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on June 17.

The event expects to collect roughly 1,100 blood units, exceeding the goal of 800 blood units set for each city and province during this year’s nationwide Red Journey blood donation campaign.

* On the same day, representatives from the Can Tho Red Cross Association, the Red Journey delegation and BIDV presented gifts to 15 patients suffering from congenital bleeding disorders undergoing treatment at Can Tho Hematology - Blood Transfusion Hospital.

* The Ho Chi Minh City authorities and the City’s Voluntary Blood Donation Encouraging Steering Committee honoured numerous outstanding local blood donors. Nearly 1,000 collectives and individuals were praised at the event for their active participation in blood donation activities.
