Visitors to Pattaya at the moment have the perfect opportunity to combine shopping with helping the community. Simply head over to the Mike Shopping Mall and find the Red Cross stall to donate precious pints of life saving blood.

The Red Cross has set up in Pattaya’s Mike Shopping Mall as part of their annual project to raise stocks of blood, which will be used throughout the year whenever patients are rushed to the Queen Savang Vadhana Memorial Hospital.

“Donated blood will be stored at the Thai Red Cross blood bank ready to be used by hospitals for their patients. All services can contact the blood bank for such needs,” Surat Mekawarakul, chief executive of the mall told the Pattaya Mail recently.

This is the 17th year in a row that blood donations have been received at the mall, with last year’s contributions totally a staggering 44,100cc. However, the Red Cross is still far behind last year’s achievement and need plenty more donors if they have a chance of helping the thousands of accident victims that are regularly brought to the hospital in need of medical assistance.
