More than 400 blood units donated on “Red Sunday”


TVU – The “Red Sunday” blood donation, which Tien Phong newspaper and Tra Vinh University collaborated to organize for the second time on October 2, attracted hundreds of students to participate.

A large number of students gathered early in the morning to take part in the Red Sunday campaign at the TVU blood donation site, creating a vibrant and bustling atmosphere.

One of the first donors was Nguyen Thi Nhu Thao, a third-year student majoring in Early Childhood Education. “After hearing about the campaign from the youth union a few days ago, I arrived early to donate my blood to society because I think it’s a meaningful activity,” Thao said. Le Kim Ngan, a third-year student majoring in Literature Education, felt happy after donating blood because doing so would give patients more energy to fight the illness.

Journalist Nguyen Ngoc Tien, the chief representative of the Tien Phong newspaper in the Mekong Delta, attended the blood donation event and interacted with participants from the Tra Vinh University Voluntary Blood Donation Club.

Tac Vu Hao, Head of Tra Vinh University’s Voluntary Blood Donation Club, said that despite many challenges brought on by the heavy rain in the morning, students still enthusiastically participated in this meaningful activity. The students and instructors have always enthusiastically supported voluntary blood donation programs, according to Hao.

Ms. Phạm Lê Phương Thảo, President of the Student Association of Tra Vinh University, stated that voluntary blood donation events are regularly organized. Every year, between 300 and 400 officials and students gather for at least three to four large-scale blood donations. Additionally, training sessions are often scheduled to promote the advantages of voluntary blood donation. According to Ms. Thao, the Voluntary Blood Donation Club has been able to successfully connect staff, lecturers, students, and patients in blood supply over the years because of its enthusiasm, passion, and desire to serve the community.

After going through challenging times, changing operational processes, and blood shortages, the club has now made a number of beneficial adjustments that have been acknowledged by the university and the province’s leaders. According to the slogan, “Every drop of blood to give is to make a life to stay”, the club members are always prepared to take action for a happy community.
