  • “Bone Marrow for Life” recognized as a Key Voluntary Service Project Funded by Zhejiang Provincial Government
  • At the Zhejiang Volunteer Association’s 11th Council Meeting and Voluntary Service Program Partnering Conference held on March 2nd in Hangzhou, Project “Bone Marrow for Life, Living for Love --- Haematogenous Stem Cell Donation (a volunteer service/public welfare drive)” of Wenzhou Medical University (WMU),  through processes such as program recommendation, document examination and road show evaluation at the provincial level, was finally recognized as a Key Voluntary Service Project Funded by Zhejiang Provincial Government. Moreover, chosen as the representative of all recognized programs, the Project completed its roadshow on the Partnering Conference.

    Project “Bone Marrow for Life” was jointly launched by WMU’s Xinglin Youth Volunteer Service and Qiming Youth Volunteer Service. It is now a formally registered private non-enterprise unit (since 2014) devoted to the publicity and promotion of donating life-saving haematogenous stem cells. With its impact model targeting medical students, college students and the general public as pioneers, leaders and followers of bone marrow donation, the Project has sent staff and members for publicity and promotion in 25 cities of 8 provinces. Thanks to their efforts, 3047 volunteers now have registered in the Haematogenous Stem-cells Subscribers Information Bank (the bone marrow data bank). With the Project’s standard procedure of “leading by example-care for patient-full-time accompanying-health protection” being strictly observed and followed, 13 volunteers have successfully made donation of haematogenous stem-cells. All of them are revisited regularly for feedback under the Project. In addition, the Project has carried out volunteer activities such as Action Black Hair and Warm Ward for the care and support of leukemia patients.

    Reportedly, the Voluntary Service Program Partnering Conference of Zhejiang Province sponsored by the Communist Youth League of Zhejiang Province and Zhejiang Volunteer Association is to build a platform for Zhejiang’s outstanding volunteer service projects to share resources and complement advantages by the collaboration in between universities, governments and foundations. The Conference opened only to Zhejiang’s outstanding volunteer service projects which are gold and silver award winners at previous sessions of national and provincial competitions. At the Conference, only 10 projects including two from Wenzhou were awarded as “Key Voluntary Service Project Funded by Zhejiang Provincial Government".
