Blood Donor Day – “Blood drops of love, Spring 2016”
Following the success of the Blood Donor Day 2015, Thu Cuc International General Hospital together with National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion held the “Blood drops of love, Spring 2016” program. This program attracted the attention of hundreds of doctors, officials and staff members from Thu Cuc Hospital.
“Blood Donor Day” at Thu Cuc Hospital is a voluntary activity which is held annually to promote kindness and love among people, sharing the pain with patients through this practical activity. Besides, this noble action also enhances the spirit of solidarity, love and support in the community.
“Blood drops of love, Spring 2016” drew the attention of hundreds of officials and staff members from Thu Cuc Hospital as well as Zinnia Corporation. Before blood donation, volunteers got medical examination including blood test and consultation performed by doctors of Thu Cuc Hospital and those from the National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion. After taking blood, they were given a snack, a Certificate of Appreciation and a little gift for the recognition of their participation. Furthermore, these blood donors also received a small present from Mrs. Nguyen Thu Cuc – the Chairwoman of Zinnia Corporation as an encouragement for their participation.
Actually, all blood donors have made their contribution to the development of the community. After “blood donor day”, Ms. Le Thi Anh Tuyet, a staff from Marketing Department – one of the few female volunteers donating 350ml of blood said “This is the second time I’ve participated in blood donation. I want to contribute a small part in my ability to the community. This also ensures my priority in receiving blood in case of emergency in the future. I am really happy”
Assoc. Prof., PhD., Dr. Doan Huu Nghi – Director of Thu Cuc International General Hospital – said “Drops of blood given by healthy young people is the best remedy for patients who need blood transfusion”
