NDO – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam appreciated the volunteer blood donors’ love and human kindness at his meeting with 100 typical examples of blood donation movement in Hanoi on June 5.

Speaking at the meeting, he assessed that the volunteer blood donation movement has attracted a large number of participants nationwide, bringing about very significant effects.

The humanitarian blood donation is not only a medical issue and every drop of blood contains good values and love of humans, added the Deputy PM.

He noted that the Party and State always insist on sustainable development goals, particularly paying much attention to improving the material, cultural and spiritual life for people in remote areas.

However, Deputy PM Dam frankly pointed out a problem that many localities has neglected environmental, cultural and social issues due to pressure of economic development.

Therefore, it is crucial to arouse good values like humanitarian blood donation thanks to typical examples, he said.

Nearly 1.4 million units of blood were donated in 2018, 98.3% of which were sourced from volunteers.
