HA NOI (VNS) — On the occasion of World Blood Donor Day yesterday, Ha Noi held a ceremony to honour 100 dedicated blood donors.
Among the 100 honourary attendees, 10 donated their blood between 60 and 96 times in 2014, while another 46 gave blood at least 20 times last year. About two dozens donors were recognised for their efforts in calling on hundreds of others to donate.
At the ceremony, Chairman of the Central Committee of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front Nguyen Thien Nhan asked local authorities to co-operate more with the health sector and Red Cross to increase public awareness about the benefits of blood donation.
Earlier on Saturday a blood donation day called The Kind-hearted Summer was held in Ha Noi, collecting a total of 1,500 units of blood from volunteers. — VNS
