The Phuket Regional Blood Center confirmed that a total of 2,281 donors took part in the blood drive, donating 1,648 units of bloods over three days from Friday through Sunday (Sept 13-15).

“Our university pays much attention to activities to serve the local community. We hope to make quality citizens who are responsible for their local area. Additionally, the blood centre also needs spare blood for unexpected situations,” he added.

Vathu Ouoad of the Phuket Regional Blood Center told The Phuket News that the extra blood stocks is much needed.

“The aim of this particular donation drive was to increase our blood stocks for use during the university break,” Ms Vathu said.

“The blood will also be used for the coming Vegetarian Festival (when spirit mediums often need blood transfusions) and the school holidays in September and October,” Ms Vathu added.
