1,300 students, staff, alumnus participated; scholarship given to multiple donators
Daegu Health College (DHC / President Dr. Nam, Sung-hee) gives back to the community with its large scale blood drive.
DHC announced on the 20th that it will host ‘the 21st DHC Blood Drive’ on the 22nd at various locations throughout the campus; main building lobby on the 1st floor, conference room on the 3rd floor, 2 buses, and the blood donation center on campus.
More than 1,300 students, faculty members and alumnus have signed up for the drive. Donators are accredited to 6 volunteer hours. With the help of Korea Red Cross and Daegu Gyeongbuk Redcross Blood Services, 50 beds were set at the lobby and the conference room beginning 9am – the relay of blood drive continued until 6 pm. Souvenirs, nail art services and other various events were available for those who donate blood donation certificates.
Daegu Gyeongbuk Redcross Blood Services will provide scholarship to DHC considering its contributions; blood drive for the past 20 years, waiver on rental for blood donation center on campus, and contributions to the public health. The blood drive scholarship will be provided semi-annually (1st, 2nd half) among DHC students who donate blood multiple times.
President Nam said “blood is irreplaceable – donating blood is a means to truly give back to the community. As we continue our beautiful gesture of donation, I will make the blood drive one of DHC’s iconic festivals.”
DHC hosted its first blood drive with the citizens of Daegu in 1999 with its motto ‘lesser the pain and more the love when you share.’
DHC has been developing its blood donation campaigns with the citizens into a festival; more than 18,000 students and citizens have participated in DHC’s blood drive as of last year.
