Blood transfusion centre appeals for more donors

The Lao Red Cross National Blood Transfusion Centre is calling for more people to donate blood in order to meet the increasing need for blood transfusions at hospitals around country.
In recent years the centre has collected an average of 55,000 bags of blood annually, but this quantity is insufficient to meet demand.
In the first seven months of this year, the centre collected about 34,000 bags of blood from donors and is aiming for about 60,000 bags by the end of the year.
