Da Nang workers join in blood donation programme

About 1,000 trade union members and labourers in the central city of Da Nang took part in a blood donation programme on March 1, an activity to help ease blood shortage for health care after the Lunar New Year holiday.

President of the Da Nang Confederation of Labour Nguyen Duy Minh said this was an annual activity of the confederation. Particularly, amid complex developments of the COVID-19 outbreak, it is even more important to ensure blood reserves for first aid and medical treatment at hospitals.

To ensure health safety for donors, organisers provided hand sanitiser and face masks for them and checked their body temperature.

The labour confederation also called on sponsors to support participants with 1,000 fabric face masks and 1,000 water bottles.

As many as 431 blood units were collected at the event.
