Banglamung Red Cross member Aumnuay Saengchumpol said donating blood not only replenishes national supplies, but is a worthy way for Buddhists to make merit.
Local folks donated 36,000cc of blood at BHP during the latest drive to benefit the Thai Red Cross.
“I am happy to have donated blood, this was actually my first time,” said Prathumthong Chompu, an employee at the Montien Pattaya Hotel. “It is making merit for myself and helping others. The hotel had invited and urged over 10 employees to travel to donate blood for the benefit of society.”
In all, 104 people donated blood, adding 36,400cc in donations. The next drive will be held Nov. 28.
