Red Cross appeals for more volunteers on World Blood Donor Day 

Vientiane schoolchildren, soldiers, police and government officials regularly give blood to supply the country’s hospitals, with blood especially needed by road accident victims. But supply does not meet demand, largely because of the increasing number of injuries caused by road accidents. The rapid increase in the number of road accident victims is proving to be a big problem for the Lao Red Cross National Blood Transfusion Centre when it comes to evaluating the amount of blood it needs and providing that blood.
