The Indian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (INCHAM) will organize a blood donation drive at Ben Thanh Theater in Ho Chi Minh City's District 1 on August 18.

The actual event at Ben Thanh Theater (6 Mac Dinh Chi Street) will take place from 8:30 a.m. till noon.

INCHAM said in a press release on Monday that it is working with the Ho Chi Minh City Red Cross to launch the program.

The Indian organization said it considers blood donation a social responsibility, a healthy practice and a profound gesture that one can make a difference between life and death.

"We realize, every moment; someone in distress needs blood. She or he may be a cancer patient, someone who needs the vital fluid after childbirth/surgery, or a victim of an accident. Unfortunately, many such patients are not lucky to receive blood in time, with potentially fatal consequences," INCHAM said.

For all the donors, the HCMC Red Cross will issue a Donor card and undertake to give an equal amount of blood donated FREE of any charges in a situation where the donor needs it. This card does not have any time limitation.

INCHAM asks everyone to make this important humanitarian initiative a great success by participating yourself and persuading colleagues, friends and family to donate blood as well.
