HCM CITY — A blood donation campaign will be organised in HCM City on Sunday by the Indian Business Chamber in Việt Nam and the HCM City Red Cross Society.
INCHAM has called on its members to participate in the donation event at 7.30am on November 29 at the Youth Cultural Centre, 4 Phạm Ngọc Thạch Street, District 1, and also persuade their colleagues, friends and family to join.
According to the Red Cross, donors must be in good general health and at least 18 years old and 45kg in weight.
It will issue a donor card that can be used to get an equal amount of blood for free by the donors when they need it.
Experts say donating blood has many proven health benefits such as reducing heart attack risks, cholesterol levels and the risk of cancer.
It also offers donors the chance to get a free health screening and their blood tested for some major conditions.
INCHAM is a non-profit organisation established in 1999 to represent Indian businesses and promote business activities between India and Việt Nam.
It also organises various charity and cultural exchange events in Việt Nam including the annual blood donation campaign. — VNS
