Initiated since 2009, Red Sunday has collected 700,000 units of blood serving medical treatment, making it a practical movement nationwide. This year, the journey is being carried out until January 28th across 60 blood donation locations in 33 localities, expecting to attract 150,000 participants and collect some 35,000 units of blood. On January 21st morning alone, nearly 1,600 units of blood were collected in Ho Chi Minh city./.
