2014 WORLD BLOOD DONOR DAY – Sponsorship Package
For further information and blood donation registration, please contact Amy Nguyen at 3824 3562 or firstname.lastname@example.org
In Vietnam, since the Government’s approval of the national program for encouraging voluntary blood donation in 2000, blood donation has been steadily increased. However, the current blood donation level only meets 45% of demand. Therefore, AmCham includes this program in AmCham annual CSR Plan and appeal volunteers to join this meaningful program. For the last 3 years, more than 1,600 AmCham’s Donors from Ho Chi Minh City, Thu Duc and Binh Duong have donated 2,273 blood units
The AmCham CSR Group is working with the Hospital of Hematology and Blood Transfusion and Ho Chi Minh City Humanitarian Blood Donation Center of Red Cross to organize an AmCham World Blood Donor Day from July 14 to July 23 at locations provided.
Targeting employees of the FDI sector and other enterprises in HCM City, the event aims to:
• Create wider awareness of the vital role of blood transfusion in saving lives and improving the health of Vietnamese people
• Motivate more employees of the business sector to become regular voluntary unpaid blood donors to ensure sufficient stocks of blood to meet national requirements, even in emergency situations
• Recognize regular voluntary unpaid donors as public health role models; it is because they lead healthy lifestyles and are regularly screened that they are able to donate blood regularly.
• Offer joint event management opportunity to build networking, cooperation, and synergy among AmCham CSR professionals and volunteers.
The transfusion of blood and blood products helps save millions of lives every year. It can help improve life expectancy and the quality of life for patients suffering from life-threatening conditions, and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. In many countries, demand outstrips supply, and blood services face the challenge of making sufficient blood available, while also ensuring its quality and safety. Today, in 62 countries, national blood supplies are based on 100% (or more than 99,9%) voluntary unpaid blood donation. However, 40 countries still depend on family donors and even paid donors and collect less than 25% of their blood supplies from voluntary unpaid blood donors. The goals of the WHO is for all countries to obtain their blood supplies entirely from voluntary unpaid donors by 2020.
World Blood Donor Day, celebrated on 14 June every year, serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood. With the slogan “Give blood for those who give life“ and the theme “Safe blood for saving mothers”, this year’s campaign aims to increase awareness of the need for timely access to safe blood as a comprehensive approach to prevent maternal deaths.
