NDO – The Vietnam Red Cross Society will launch the Humanitarian Month in May, with the aim of supporting 50,000 to 70,000 disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

The programme will include the provision of free health check-ups and treatment for people living in difficult circumstances, blood donation campaigns, and training on first-aid knowledge and skills on disaster preparedness and response.

The event, which is part of the activities to celebrate the World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day 2018 (May 8), is designed to contribute to realising the Party and State’s social welfares policy and promote compassion and kindness in society.

It also seeks to call on the responsibilities and further participation of agencies, organisations, businesses, and people from all walks of life in humanitarian projects.
