The head of Vachira Phuket Hospital’s International Department, Ms. Methanee Maneesri said, “The patient needs surgery and requires eight units of blood for the operation. This is why we are appealing for donors to come forward.”

“We have also requested the help of the Russian Embassy to find donors,” Ms Methanee said.

Miss Vathu O-art from the Thai Red Cross Phuket Regional Blood Centre said, “AB Negative is a rare blood type and The Red Cross have limited amounts.”
