Dear blood Donor(s)
We informed you a while back that we would like to make some changes to our current blood donation process as the Foreigner donor sessions at resorts was not so popular, mainly due to people working who cannot take the time off to donate blood…..
We ceased attending all of the many sessions Nathon Hospital visit in favour of continuing with the public sessions at Makro, Big C, Tesco Lotus, and Central World and any of the hospitals. We have added to that the option for a once a month visit to Nathon on the first Saturday of every month for people who prefer a quieter atmosphere or who are a little shy.

If you would like to join our list of donors and help to save lives in Koh Samui then please confirm your contact details to us at
(, address, 3. phone number 4.blood group+ or – and 5. date you last donated blood ? ) to keep confidential records upto date.
We want to keep everyone in the loop so we can email or call when blood is needed, or if we have news to send out.

We have confirmed with Nathon Hospital that regular Foreigner donor sessions will begin on the FIRST SATURDAY OF EVERY MONTH from 08:30 – 11:30 starting on Saturday 1st November 2014 at Nathon Hospital……

This will be in addition to the public sessions at Makro, Big C, Tesco Lotus Chaweng, Central World or any of the Hospitals on the island as we are notified about them we will post on the website, facebook etc. If anyone can offer /arrange transport to help people make the journey please let us know.
Catherine and I will be helping with one car but we may need more……
……if you want to make this date please let us know by return at the email address above…..
As the number of donors increase we will be looking towards having our own sessions at other convenient locations around the island in future
however, we have to make it viable for the hospital to designate resources to us.
