With the tradition “do as you would be done by”, the blood donation movement has received the response of the people in the community. Over the years, Voluntary Blood Donation has become the annual activity of Van Lang University in each semester. To back up an appointment, this year the university  combined with the blood donation center of Ho Chi Minh City and mobilized the support of the Van Lang Social Work Team to organize Voluntary Blood Donation Day at campus 1 (1-2 November 2018) and campus 3 (6-8 November, 2018).

Nearly two months ago, the Van Lang University Social Work Team together with 50 volunteers actively promoted the propaganda work, helped the cadres - lecturers - staff and students understand correctly, fully aware and willing to participate, built voluntary blood donation movement in the university in particular and in the community in general. However, the operation was also very difficult when it was first organized in the new campus 3. The new campus was built and put into operation, it  is not 100% complete so the process of building the blood donation according to the standards are still difficult, the arrangement of subdivisions are not as favorable as expected. However, with the spirit of "solidarity", understanding blood is a priceless gift, blood can save many people, students in campus 3 still actively participate, Volunteers Social Workers have also organized activities smoothly as intended.
