On 07/04/2018, Eximbank held the Blood Donation Day at the National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion with the message of “Thousand Hearts – One Kindness”.
The “Eximbank’s Blood Donation Day” in 2018 is a succession of the charity programs that Eximbank has carried out over the past years. This is a practically meaningful activity for the sake of the whole social community, contributing a source of blood for emergency care and prevention, especially when the medical industry is scarce of blood reserve.
Along with its business activities, Vietnam Export Import Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Eximbank) has always been aware of its responsibilities towards the society and community. The Eximbank’s Blood Donation Day program has been a success and all staff of Eximbank in the North Area have donated 150 blood units to the “blood bank” nationwide.
The country needs about 1,5 million blood units for emergency, treatment and reserve, but the blood supply only meets about 60% of the demand. Blood donation doesn’t have any negative impact on health, but it even helps to lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, reduce iron overload, and make blood circulation faster. Blood donors are given periodic health checks, issued with certificate and prioritized for blood transfusion at no cost.
With the desire of bringing hope to the patients undergoing treatment at the National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion, giving them and their families more strength and confidence in the fight against diseases, Eximbank has called for all of its employees to join hearts in helping the patients with the opportunity to live / prolong their life by their own precious blood and kind hearts, and been well responded by staff all over Eximbank’s network.
Apart from the above activity, Eximbank has also granted 30 gifts to the patients with difficult family circumstances who are being treated at the National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion with the wish of “Lighting up hopes” that brings warmness, motivation and belief to the patients and their families to win over their diseases.
Through the Eximbank’s Blood Donation Day, we do not only wish to make essential contribution of more blood to the patients who are in need but also to educate and change people’s awareness of their social responsibility and sharing with the community.
