Called The Red Journey, the volunteers hope to collect more than 12,000 units of blood at 30 campaign locations during the 22-day journey, said the director of the National Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion, Nguyen Anh Tri, yesterday.

 

The campaign hopes to mobilise 40,000 people to register as blood donors and to strengthen the awareness of rural people on the need for blood donations to ease existing shortages - and take the pressure off students, who presently supply much of the donated blood.

 

The 22-day campaign will involve 150 artists and singers and more than 200 organisations, agencies and enterprises.

 

Two teams of volunteers will take part, one leaving from the Dien Bien Province in the North and the other from Ca Mau Province in the South.

 

The campaign will end with a festival called the Grateful Pink Drop on July 27 in Ha Noi.
