During the 3 day event from March 9th-11th, 11,000 people joined the blood donation drive at NIHBT and 8,500 registered to donate blood, collecting over 7,000 units.

Earlier, 17 blood donation locations were opened in Hanoi, which helped receive over 3,400 units of blood. Compared to previous years, the event was prolonged to 9 days and took place in different places, making favourable conditions for blood donors, and increasing the quality of care for blood donors.  

Initiated in 2008, the festival has made important contributions to ensure blood for medical treatment. Eleven journeys attracted over 200,000 participants and received over 70,500 units of blood./.
