[SDGs] Goal 3 - Donate Blood Save Lives
Donating blood is one of our company (IVC) ‘s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities vs SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
The company supports the staffs’ activity participation by allowing us to donate blood during working hours.
This is not the first time for all of us to donate blood but the first experience we can donate blood as IVC employees working out of office.
Let our voices be heard!
“It was the first time I donated blood in Vietnam. I went to the donation center alone. I had no idea of the process but Vietnamese people helped me. Thanks a lot!!” (Nagae)
“It was a bit surprising to see much more people in the donation center than I had imagined. As a foreigner, I expected the cumbersome procedure but the whole blood donation experience was pleasant except for the needle... The sense of contribution to society was very worth the big needle to me.” (Noe)
“This is my first time donating blood. It is a good start to the next one. I feel happy to have made a small contribution to society.” (Khuong)
“I'm happy to join in this voluntary social contribution activity. I believe that showing and spreading love is something that each of us should pursue in our life. Let's join this activity with me!” (Hanh)
“In the past, my loved one was in critical condition and needed a lot of blood to continue treatment. At that time, my family was very lucky to receive the blood of a volunteer. That's why I understand better than anyone what the meaning of a drop of blood is. And when I received the message from the blood donation center that my blood has been used for the patient, I was really happy.” (Tien)
“Despite a long time of research, scientists have been unable to develop an ideal blood substitute. There is currently no substitute for human blood. Donating blood is giving the gift of life. I love donating blood and I will encourage more colleagues, friends, family members to become regular blood donors.” (Thuy)
Hope that such meaningful and humane activity will continue to receive a wide response from IVC employees in particular and from the entire community in general so that together we will contribute to the realization of the project “sustainable development goals - SDGs” in the community!
