Rajadhevi nurse Rungthiwa Sewranont said the blood collected will go primarily to facilities in seven eastern provinces and be kept at the National Blood Bank’s Region 3 office.

“I always like to donate blood. This is my eighth time,” said donor Aareerat Nilbanp. “I want to help others and I believe that donating blood is an act of merit making. I would like to invite everyone, even those who have never donated before, to do so. It’s not as scary as it looks.”

The blood drive is the third by the two hospitals since December.
