HCM CITY (VNS) — More than 1,140 volunteers donated 1,497 units of blood in HCM City and the southern province of Binh Duong as part of a drive by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Viet Nam to celebrate the World Blood Donor Day.

The campaign, took place from July 14-23, focused on the value of donated blood to pregnant women and childbirth-related complications and severe bleeding.

Though voluntary blood donation increased nearly 20 per cent over last year, donated units of blood still only meets half of the need nationwide, according to the HCM City Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion. — VNS
