MEMBERS of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) and supporters celebrated State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s 71st birthday by donating blood and planting trees nationwide. More than 500 donors including members of the Yangon Region youths’ work committee donated blood yesterday at the National Blood Centre.
“We decided to make blood donation to mark Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s 71st birthday in order to provide the children with blood in case they suffer dengue haemorrhagic fever this rainy season,” said Joint In-charge of Yangon Region Youths’ working committee of the NLD.
At the second blood donation ceremony, U Tin Oo, patron of the NLD and U Phyo Min Thein, Yangon Region Chief Minister, expressed delight for the blood donation.
The first blood donation was held last year to celebrate Daw Suu’s 70th birthday and more than 200 blood donors participated.
Meanwhile, MPs in Tamwe and Myanmar Liver Foundation conducted a vaccination campaign to celebrate the 71st birthday of the State Counsellor. More than 1,500 residents were vaccinated against Hepatitis-B.
Meanwhile, the State Counsellor’s birthday celebration was held at the party’s headquarters with the inauguration of the new headquarters.—Nanda Win, Ye Khaung
