HÀ NỘI – The Royal Thai Embassy in Hà Nội hosted a blood donation event on July 24 with the participation of both Thai and Vietnamese communities in honour of King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s birthday anniversary.
Ambassador Tanee Sangrat said this is the first time the event has been organised in Hà Nội.
“We received big support from the Thai community, enterprises and Vietnamese friends at this event,” he said.
“It will help address the ongoing blood shortage, especially in the context of the pandemic. It reflects the long-standing friendship between two countries, especially when we celebrate the diplomatic relationship establishment on August 6.”
As many as 300 people joined the event. They all had health checks and used hand sanitisers before donating blood. VNS
