Phuket organises second blood donation event
for “blood heroes”

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket held its second blood
donation event of the year at its Grand Ballroom, in collaboration with
the Thai Red Cross Society.
The donated blood was collected for the Thai Red Cross Phuket Regional
Blood Center and will benefit to all patients, both Thai and foreigners, in
hospitals throughout 6 Andaman coastal provinces which include Phuket,
Phangnga, Krabi, Ranong, Trang, and Satun.

including balancing their iron levels, burning calories, and reducing the
risks of heart disease and cancer. With that in mind, Mövenpick Resort &

in June were received with very positive feedback from blood donors.
The total number of volunteers from both blood donations is 115 donors
who gave a total of 52 litres of blood from both the hotel’s own team
members and neighbouring hotels’ team.
