Thai firm donates centrifuge machine to Lao Red Cross

Thai company Bangkok Terminal Logistics has donated a centrifuge machine worth 275 million kip (approx. 15,600 USD) to the Lao Red Cross.

The handover took place in Vientiane on May 16 between Managing Director of Bangkok Terminal Logistics Mr Borvornsint Tanthuwanit and President of Lao Red Cross Phouthone Muongpak in the presence of relevant officials of both sides.

Dr Phouthone Muongpak expressed thanks to Bangkok Terminal Logistics for its generous assistance, noting that the centrifuge machine which is critical for saving people suffering from kidney diseases will be further given to a target hospital to be used for humanitarian purposes.

“We are happy to donate this medical machine today. Asides from making profit, doing business in Laos also requires us to contribute to helping local communities,” said Mr Borvornsint Tanthuwanit.
