Tehran-Hanoi cycling tour in commemoration of World Blood Donor Day

A group of three Iranian cyclists started their tour from Iran to Vietnam on 24th of April 2017. The group will pedal the way to promote the culture of blood donation, raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and participate in the World Blood Donor Day (WBDD) global ceremony in Vietnam (Hanoi).

Vietnam has been selected to host this year global celebration of WBDD. This year’s campaign will focus on blood donation in emergencies. The campaign underlines the role every single person can play in helping others in emergency situations, by giving the valuable gift of blood. It also focuses on the fact that it is important to give blood regularly, so that the blood stock is sufficient before an emergency arises.

The cyclists will pass Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China and Laos to reach Vietnam.
