HA NOI (VNS)— About 35,000 litres of blood have been donated in the capital city, Ha Noi, so far this year, exceeding the entire year's goal for blood donations by two per cent.

The outcome was attributed to the city's efforts at promoting diverse communication campaigns that helped citizens from all walks of life to understand and become actively involved in the blood donation drive.

A blood donation club was also established, with more than 100 people ready to donate blood for emergency cases.

As many as 3,000 students from universities and colleges across the city now regularly donate blood to hospitals.

In 2014, Ha Noi aims to ensure that blood donations increase to 125,000 units. — VNS
