The DKSH Laos Company Limited donated two sets of tube sealers and 40 blood transfusion sets to the Lao National Blood Centre, worth over 47 million kip (USD 5,839).
A handover ceremony for the medical equipment, aiming to provide a safe and clean environment for life-saving blood donations was held on April 21 in Vientiane Capital in the presence of President of the Lao Red Cross, Mr Khamhoung Heaungvongsy.
The aid package donated by the DKSH Laos Company Ltd will contribute to improvement of blood donation services in Laos and provide Lao people with better access to safe blood service.
The DKSH Laos Company has donated other medical equipment to the National Blood Centre in the past.
Currently, medical equipment is still high demand in the blood centers around the country, so donations from non-governmental organizations and private companies are very welcome, according to Mr Khamhoung.
