Red Cross blood donation drive schedule for June



PHUKET: Mobile blood donation clinics will be popping up all over the island this month, the Phuket Red Cross announced today.

The Phuket Regional Blood Center (PRBC) is hoping to supplement its limited supplies of O, A, and AB blood types.

“We need to maintain a daily minimum of 200 units of these blood types, in addition to 20 units of Rhesus-negative blood. B-negative type is also urgently needed,” said PRBC chief Pornthip Rattajak.

“We currently have only 60 units of blood type O, 76 units of blood type A and 93 units of blood type AB on hand,”she said. “We already have 203 units of blood type B.”
