    If you want to help by donating blood:

    From the Nation:
    “…there’s a shortage of Rh-negative blood, which some 15 percent of Westerners have as against only four in 1,000 Thais. “So far more than 50 Westerners have volunteered to donate blood and we should have several more later today,” she said.

    The Thai Red Cross Society’s disaster service centre has called for donations A, O and Rh-negative blood. It has also asked people to donate blankets, tissue paper, canned food, underwear, sanitary napkins, drinking water, trash bags, and coffins. The society will receive blood donors until 7pm daily and other donations for 24 hours. The Red Cross Society’s contact numbers is 02 2513111 ext. 114, 157, 161, 162.”
