Phuket blood center needs AB supplies

PHUKET: The Phuket Regional Blood Center (PRBC) is holding blood donation sessions across Phuket throughout September to replenish blood stocks, especially AB blood types.

Under the banner ‘Give Blood to Fellowmen’, the September blood donation drive is in honor of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit’s 84th birthday anniversary and His Majesty the King’s 70th anniversary of his accession to the throne. Queen Sirikit is also the President of the Thai Red Cross Society.

PRBC chief Pornthip Rattajak said donations of AB blood types are urgently needed to bolster stocks in case blood is required for emergencies in Phuket and other neighboring provinces.
