Ton Duc Thang University contributes to the blood donation program “Blood drops for the community”
Responding to the call to donate blood for the community, on the morning of August 17th, the staffs and students of Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU) were present at the General Clinic of the University of Medicine Pham Ngoc Thach to donate “blood drops of love”.
The blood donation program with the theme “Blood drops for the community” was organized by the Party Committee Propaganda Department of the Universities and Colleges bloc in Ho Chi Minh City in coordination with the University of Medicine Pham Ngoc Thach on the morning of August 17th, 2020.
With the message “volunteering for life and community”, the program received the contribution from many cadres, Party members, and officials from 32 Party institutions directly under the bloc Party Committee.
Lecturers, officials and students from different faculties of TDTU actively participated in the Program. In addition to the young faces participating in the voluntary blood donation movement for the first time were accompanied by those who have donated their blood for 9 or 10 times.
The organization and arrangement procedures in information collection, measuring blood pressure, and collecting blood samples have been done neatly and scientifically. Physicians, volunteers and blood donors all wore masks and washed their hands with antiseptic to ensure that measures against Covid-19 Pandemic are well implemented.
Blood and blood products are essential during emergency, treatment and nurturing of patients. Recently, due to the influence of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the number of people going to donate blood has decreased significantly which has hit the blood reserves as well as the blood products in hospitals in short supply. The organizers of the program “Blood drops for the community” hope that through this call, it will help partly to solve the anemia problem in hospitals in the city during this period.
