Urgent plea for rare O-negative blood donours

A family has pleaded for urgent donations of rare O-negative blood to save an aged father.

The son of Sawaeng Sukthuen said his father has been admitted to Phichit Hospital for nine days and has so far received one bag of O-negative blood.

The blood is a rare type in Thailand, available in just 1 in 1,000 Thais.

Sawaeng now has only 18 per cent of blood.

Interested donors please contact 0819111705. Donations can be made at Red Cross offices in any province.
