The Theun-Hinboun Power Company (THPC) organized a blood donation session at the company’s hydropower plant on Aug 14. Company workers and their family members joined senior company staff in giving blood at the site in Khounkham district, Khammouane province.

THPC also handed over 350 T-shirts to the Lao Red Cross. The shirts will be given to blood donors to thank them for their contributions, and to encourage others to give blood.

Dr Vilith Phasavath, Director of the Lao Red Cross Khammouane, thanked THPC and its staff for this support, saying that the efforts of companies like THPC would help Laos meet its target of 55,000 people giving much-needed blood this year.

Last year, more than 50,000 people donated blood in Laos, including around 21,000 people from Vientiane Capital and about 29,000 from provinces.
