Blood Donation Festival due on Sunday
The Red Sunday campaign was announced by organizers, the Central Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion and Tien Phong (Vanguard) newspaper in Hanoi on January 15.

Hospitals usually lack blood for emergency cases during the Tet holiday due to the increasing number of traffic accidents. The annual campaign shows Vietnamese people’s tradition of mutual assistance and support for patients in dire need of blood for surgery in hospitals.

Le Xuan Son, Tien Phong’s editor-in-chief, said the Red Sunday campaign has received strong response from people of all social strata, especially young people and students.

The campaign has also received enthusiastic support from other localities besides Hanoi, and this year Thai Nguyen University will launch a similar blood donation day to follow suit.

The organizing board hoped to gather between 800 and 1,000 units of blood this Sunday.

Launched four years ago, Red Sunday has attracted tens of thousands of blood donors, collecting more than 2,500 units and presenting thousands of gifts to patients in Hanoi.
