On Friday the 18th of November, the first Panaydee blood donation session will be held in conjunction with Blood Donors Koh Samui.
This will give the opportunity to anyone over the age of 17 to participate in the blood donation session for the supplies on Koh Samui.
If you have been on the island for any extended period of time, it is highly likely that you have known of someone who has needed a blood transfusion. The supplies of available blood often run low. This is an opportunity to give something tangible, and possibly lifesaving, to the community.
In the past 11 years, I have personally known of three people on Samui whose lives have been saved by donor blood. It is rare to be able to donate anything which has the power to be so profoundly vital. When donating money, you may worry that the recipient will receive only a fraction of what has been given. If you donate blood over 99% of your donation will be gratefully received.
I would humbly ask you all to tell as many people about this event as possible. Please tell your friends and family what we will be doing as this will be a great opportunity to help increase the amount of available blood supplies on the island.
If you have any initial questions, I would recommend that you visit the Blood Donors Koh Samui website, www.blooddonorskohsamui.com.
