The event attracted nearly 800 officers, non-commissioned officers, cadets, and troops from the school.

With the message “A donated drop of blood saves a life,” the participants donated 680 blood units to the provincial Red Cross Society.

Naval troops join the blood donation movement.

The activity promoted the beautiful tradition of the nation while showing the troops’ responsibility towards the community, especially amid the complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the event, the organizing panel observed the pandemic prevention and control regulations. All participants had their samples taken for quick COVID-19 testing and strictly adhered to the Health Ministry's 5K regulations: Khau trang (face mask), Khu khuan (disinfection), Khoang cach (distancing), Khong tu tap (no large gathering), and Khai bao y te (health declaration).

According to the unit’s Political Commissar Senior Colonel Nguyen Minh Tuan, the school hosts the blood donation program twice a year. The average number of blood units collected each time is about 500.

This is the 12th time the school has organized the blood donation program, with the largest number of blood units collected since 2016.
