PANO – In response to “The world blood donor day” and “Pink blood drops in summer 2013″ campaign, the Kon Tum provincial Steering Board for Voluntary Blood Donation held a ceremony on July 4th in Kon Tum City to honour blood donors active last year.
Accordingly, the provincial People’s Committee presented Certificates of merit to 3 groups and the steering board offered certificates of merit to 9 groups and 99 individuals who had donated blood five times. The provincial red cross society also handed over Certificates of merit to 40 other individuals who had donated blood three times.
Under the message, “Each donated drop of blood saves a live”, in 2012, the province collected more than 2,200 units of blood and the figure is expected to reach 2,400 this year.
