In his letter, the President said that blood donation is a kind act and responsibility of each individual.
For years, the movement to give blood voluntarily has grown nationwide with meaningful activities such as “Le hoi Xuan Hong”(Pink Festival), “Hanh trinh do”( Red Journey),“Giot hong tri an”( Grateful blood drop), “Trai tim tinh nguyen” ( Voluntary heart). 

More types of blood donation in localities like “Tuyen pho hien mau”( locals in a street donate blood),  “Cau lac bo nhom mau hiem”( Clubs of people with rare blood type); therefore, timely provision of blood to save people contributes to develop the country’s good  tradition. 

President Quang lauded exemplary blood donors who have donated blood many times and those who encouraged their relatives to give blood.

He asked governments, agencies and unions to promote voluntary blood donation movement more and called for the contribution of people in the country and soldiers to give their blood for saving others.
