Attending a recent voluntary blood donation program co-held by provincial Red Cross, provincial Police Agency’s Youth Union and HCM city-based Cho Ray hospital’s Blood Transfusion Center, we could see the wide and deep spreading of the movement among police officers. Despite being very busy with their professional task, with the meaning of "A drop of blood saves a life”, officials, soldiers, Youth Union members of provincial Police Agency voluntarily participated in the movement, affirming their sense of responsibility and affection towards the community, joining hands for the sake of people’s health. With the theme of "Journey of a blood drop of sentimental attachment", this blood donation stage received 295 units of blood, actively contributing to the addition of blood reserves for emergency and treatment.

Tong Xuan Giang, Vice-Chairman of Provincial Red Cross said that in response to this year's the All-people blood donation day (April 7), provincial Red Cross Society had sent instructions to members of the Steering Committee for Voluntary Blood Donation at all levels of the province. This is the peak period for the annual voluntary blood donation, so all localities will organize blood reception stages. Mr. Giang said: “Through promoting propaganda to raise awareness and change the behavior of cadres, civil servants, public employees, employees and people from all strata about the purpose and noble meaning of blood donation; encouraging numerous people from all walks of life to participate in giving blood, especially on April 7, the province will strive to mobilize and receive at least 2,000 units of blood or 10% of the year’s target, meeting the local demand for first-aid and treatment”.

In Thu Dau Mot city, the movement of voluntary blood donation has reached wide and deep development with the participation of numerous people from all strata, especially laborers and students. Although being affected by Covid-19 epidemic, the city's Steering Committee for Voluntary Blood Donation since early this year has received more than 600 units of blood. Bui Thi Ngoc Truc, Chairwoman of the city’s Red Cross Society said that the city’s Steering Committee for Voluntary Blood Donation will also organize  a blood donation festival on April 7 and is expected to collect 400 units of blood. Responding to this year’s the All-people blood donation day, Thuan An city’s Steering Committee for Voluntary Blood Donation will also organize a new blood donation stage and is expected to collect 150 units of blood on April 13 ahead.

Along with giving blood, Duong Quang Toan, an active member of the local voluntary blood donation movement has set up a Facebook page to propagandize and mobilize all people to take part in blood donation for many years. "Donating blood regularly to help patients and check personal health", is the message that he always sends to everyone when having the opportunity to propagandize and mobilize. He also shared: “Blood donation is not only good for the health of blood donors, helping them regenerate new blood sources in their body, but also an opportunity for them to have periodic health checks at no extra cost. Therefore, if having good health, everyone should participate in blood donation ”.

According to Mr. Giang, the local voluntary blood donation movement got more and more thriving over the past time. “To obtain the result, in addition to the efforts by cadres, members and volunteers of Red Cross Societies at all levels, the role of the Steering Committees for Voluntary Blood Donation at all levels was also very important. Members of the Steering Committees as well as the Red Cross Societies at all levels actively mobilized volunteers and people from all strata to participate in blood donation. Promoting the application of information technology in propaganda and mobilization for voluntary blood donation also helped people easily get access to  information on the organization of voluntary blood donation stages, thereby attracting more and more blood donors, contributing to spreading noble gestures in the community ", he said.

In addition to the annual peak stages of blood donation with programs, namely “Pink Spring Festival”, “Red Journey”,...the units have also organized more blood reception stages, ensuring and exceeding the assigned targets from the beginning of the year, thereby promptly providing enough blood for emergency and treatment at hospitals.
