So far, more than 60 doctors have taken part in the drive.
The campaign, being run for the first time this year, highlights the important role that blood donation plays in saving patient’s lives.
Dr. Ngo Xuan Minh, Head of the Neonatal Department, said that the existence of the hospital’s blood bank was made possible by generous donations from the hospital’s doctors.
Dr. Xuan Minh also gave his blood in the morning and this is the 40th time he has donated his blood to save people.
