Phuket blood center calls for donations in honor of HM The King



PHUKET: The Phuket Regional Blood Center (PRBC) has invited all qualified island residents to make a blood donation in honor of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 87th birthday today.

Those wishing to honor HM The King in this way will have a chance to sign a get-well message for His Majesty, explained PRBC Acting Chief Pornthip Rattajak.

“We currently have 700 units of blood on hand, which is great. However, we always need more,” Ms Pornthip said.

“If we have enough donations, we can even help out nearby provinces in emergencies.”

Those interested in donating can also give blood at one of the many mobile donation clinics that will be set up in various locations around the island this month.

“As always, the most needed blood type is Rhesus-negative [Rh-],” Ms Pornthip added.

To help replenish critical stocks, mobile blood donation clinics will be set up at the following places and times in Phuket in December:

December 5: Phuket Regional Blood Center, 8:30am – 4:30pm

December 8: Training Room, Royal Paragon Company, 10am – 2pm
