Deputy head of the campaign’s organising board Le Hoang Oanh said hospitals nationwide often lack blood during summer so that the National Steering Committee for Voluntary Blood Donation holds the annual campaign to ease the scarce blood supply.

In 2017, nearly 1.5 million units of blood were collected nationwide, 98 percent of them were from voluntary donors.

Over the past five years, the campaign has come to 46 cities and provinces nationwide, raising public awareness of the effort and acquiring more than 120,000 blood units.

This year, the drive was scheduled to go through 26 cities and provinces.
