AmCham’s summer blood donor day brought about 260 blood donors

Members of companies that actively supported the initiative came from Victoria Healthcare Clinic, Bayer Company, Coats Phong Phu, and Techtronic Industries Vietnam.

The 2023 AmCham Summer Blood Donor Day was part of World Blood Donor Day, a global blood drive launched by the World Health Organisation to raise public awareness of the need for a safe blood source and to recognise the efforts of blood donors.

The campaign focuses on patients in need of lifelong blood transfusion support and highlights the role each person can play by giving the precious gift of blood or plasma. It also emphasises the importance of regularly giving blood or plasma to create a safe and sustainable supply of blood and blood products available worldwide so that all patients in need can be treated promptly.

Being one of the largest business associations in Vietnam, AmCham has more than 550 corporate and 2,000 individual members.
