Many members of the Thai public presented themselves at the Thai Red Cross Society’s National Blood Centre in Bangkok on Sunday to make blood donations, as the centre hosted activities to mark “World Blood Donor Day”, which is celebrated annually on June 14.

The National Blood Centre held the blood-donation promoting activities under the slogan “Be there for someone else. Give blood. Share life” in a bid to remind people of the importance of blood donation and the value of giving without wanting anything in return.

Many regional offices also participated, including Lop Buri, Chon Buri, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chiang Mai and Songkhla.

June 14 was also the birthday of Nobel Prize winning scientist Karl Landsteiner who discovered the ABO blood group system.
