On September 12, over 85 people joined our blood drive to replenish the diminishing supply at Hanoi’s blood bank. Special thanks to Concordia International School Hanoi and the InterContinental Hanoi Westlake for their great support of this effort. The large number of donors at this blood drive is a great reminder that social distancing does not mean social disengagement.

We can all do our part to help in these challenging times. We remind members to use common sense, maintain good hygiene, and be mindful of your actions. If you are feeling sick, stay at home. Also, if you or somebody you know experiences symptoms of the Covid-19 virus: fever, cough, and difficulty breathing – or those concerned they may have been exposed to the virus, immediately call Vietnam’s health hotlines at 19003228 or 19009095.
