Honoring the Queen’s 45th Birthday
On June 9, 2023, the Provincial Electricity Authority of Koh Samui and Samui City Municipality came together to organize the “Volunteer Spirit, Blood Donation” project. This event paid homage to Her Majesty Queen Suthida Bajrasudhabimalalakshana on the occasion of her 45th birthday, which took place on June 3, 2023.
The Importance of Blood Donation
Blood donation is a selfless act of kindness that benefits the community without expecting anything in return. This critical activity helps maintain an adequate blood supply and meets the needs of patients across the nation. It becomes particularly important during times of crisis, like natural disasters or public health emergencies.
The Event at Phet Samui Meeting Room
The blood donation drive took place at the Phet Samui meeting room, Samui City Municipality, in the Koh Samui sub-district. The event ran from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with a large turnout of participants who graciously donated their blood for a good cause.
Involvement of the Local Community
The local community played a significant role in making the blood donation project a success. People from all walks of life in Koh Samui came together to contribute to this noble cause and honor Her Majesty Queen Suthida at the same time.
Benefits for Donors and Recipients
Blood donation not only helps patients in need but also provides health benefits for the donors. It can reduce the risk of heart disease, help balance iron levels, and contribute to a healthier lifestyle. Meanwhile, recipients benefit from the lifesaving blood transfusions, which enable them to recover from illnesses, surgeries, or accidents.
Future Blood Donation Initiatives
After the success of the “Volunteer Spirit, Blood Donation” project, it is expected that Samui City Municipality and the Provincial Electricity Authority of Koh Samui will continue to collaborate on similar initiatives. These blood drives will help ensure a stable and sufficient blood supply for the region while fostering a sense of community and altruism.
As the local community comes together to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Suthida’s birthday, the blood donation drive highlights the importance of selflessness and unity. The event serves as a reminder to continue supporting each other and contributing to the greater good of society.
