On May 8th, President of Phuket Red Cross Mrs Nalinee Akkaradecha presided over the event ‘World Red Cross Red Crescent Day 2012’. Mrs Nalinee, was joined by Red Cross officials and Phuket residents, who all donated blood.
Mrs Nalinee said, “Youth on the Move” is this year’s concept. It’s to encourage youths to care for Thai society. Moreover, it is to remind all blood donors to donate with their own will. Blood donors are examples of healthy people. In addition, donating blood is also a reason to get your health checked. After giving blood, the blood will go to the laboratory and if there’s any disease, Red Cross will inform the donor. However, not only can you donate blood, but you can also donate eyes and other organs. It’s for your own good and to help others in need.”
