URGENT: B- and O- blood needed in Bangkok

Update January 25, 12.55pm. Family has requested that all updates come from Samitivej Hospital. The hospital’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Samitivej. 

——-

Please folks, help get this message out.

I don’t have all the details but I can tell you this:

A mother of two little girls was in a car accident and is in surgery to try and stop internal bleeding. The Thai Red Cross is desperately short on B- and O- also needed.

“If they succeed she has extensive internal damage and will need more blood over the coming days. There is enough 0 negative in the banks, but the hospital urgently requires more B negative. SO PLEASE KEEP THE BLOOD COMING OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS IF YOU CAN. Please complete a form saying” Donate to Lara Rose at Samitivej Hospital, Suhkumvit 49 only”.
Blood can only be taken at Thai Red Cross, Henri Dunant Rd, near Chulalongkorn Hospital, nearest MRT Silom, nearest BTS Siam.
Mon, Wed and Fri : 8.00 hrs – 16.30 hrs.
Tue and Thu : 7.30 hrs. – 19.30 hrs.
Weekends and Public Holidays : 11.00 hrs. – 15.30 hrs.
Tel : 02-263-9600-99″

Please help spread the word and say a prayer for this mama.

Thank you.

  1. So sorry to hear about this. Can only people in Bangkok donate or can anyone in the world as long as the name is on there? Maybe this is a dumb question, but I thought I’d ask anyway…

  2. I just heard that this is Lara Casher . We send our love and wish her well. We are stopping over, not staying, at Bangkok airport on Wednesday . Is there anything we can bring over?

    • Hi Anne, apologies for then delay in replying. I hope you saw my last post in the series which directs readers to the Facebook group: Blood Drive for Lara. Lara’s husband is on the group and you can leave a message there. I would pass it on directly but I don’t know them personally. Just an expat who jumped in to help out on the social media side. All the best and thank you for your kindness.

    • Raja, if you are in Bangkok and have B- blood,I beg you to consider looking over the red cross’s eligibility page and consider becoming a regular donor.

      Were very lucky to mobilize so many people so quickly for Lara Rose but it has since come to my attention that there is a continual shortage for Rh- blood and several people including a young boy have been in need since.

      Please do donate if you can and encourage others with Rh- as well. Building a strong donor base helps others and in turn could help you someday too.

      Kind regards, MM
