The launching ceremony was attended by Vice Chairman of National Assembly (NA) Uong Chu Luu; Minister of Health Nguyen Thi Kim Tien; Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee Bui Quang Huy; and representatives of ministries, central branches and Hanoi, as well as thousands of students from universities in Hanoi.

Speaking at the event, NA Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu highly appreciated the significance of the Red Journey Blood Donation Festival that agencies and units across the country, especially Tien Phong Newspaper, the National Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion and the National Steering Committee for Traffic Safety, have brought to the community.

He lauded the holding of the Red Sunday as it enables tens of thousands of patients the chance of survival and to be united with their families during the upcoming traditional New Year festival.

The NA Vice Chairman also noted that acute blood scarcity still happens, especially during holidays and festivals, putting a lot of pressure on the healthcare sector.

He said he is moved by the many people who donate their blood many times and encourage others to follow suit.

He called on management officials, agencies, organisations, and businesses to join in encouraging more people to donate blood to help hospitals ease the chronic shortage.
