Phuket, give blood out of love

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: The Phuket Regional Blood Center (PRBC) has invited all qualified island residents to make a blood donation in February – which holds Valentine’s Day dearly in its bosom.

“We want people to donate their blood in this month of love, so that they can share their brotherly love for their fellow human beings,” said PRBC acting chief Pornthip Rattajak.

“Our supplies are usually low at this time of the year, because students are on holiday and they are the largest population of blood donors. So, please come and help out.”

Those interested in donating can either visit the center at Saphan Hin or give at one of the many mobile donation clinics that will be set up in various locations around the island next month.

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

February 3: Muang Thalang School, 10am-2pm

February 5: Bangkok Phuket Hospital, 1pm-5pm

February 10: Anupas and Family Company (Honda Showroom), 10am-3pm

February 11: Phuttaraksa Meeting Room, Srinagarindra the Princess Mother School, 9am-3pm

February 12: Toyota Pearl Phuket Company, 10am-4pm

February 17: The Regent Phuket Cape Panwa, 1pm-4pm

February 20: Labour Court Region 8, 10am-3pm
Homepro Village (Chalong branch), 12am-4pm

February 23: Central Festival Phuket, 12am-6pm

February 24: Phuket Wittayalai School, 9am-3p

February 26: Cherng Talay Sub-district Administrative Organization, 10am-3pm

The PRBC is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30am – 4:30pm; on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30am – 8:00pm; and on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 9am – 3:00pm.
