         The Thai Red Cross Society invites you to donate blood to help people in need and help maintain the national blood reserve on May 8, the International Day of the Red Cross.

        The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was founded on the idea of Jean-Henri Dunant, who witnessed the sadness of soldiers who died on the battlefield while uncaring for. Henri Dunant has gathered volunteers such as doctors, nurses, and regular citizens to care for wounded soldiers from both sides, and it has become the Red Cross's mission to provide assistance to all without regard to race, nationality, or religion.

        The International Committee of the Red Cross chose May 8, Henri Dunant's birthday, as International Red Cross Day. For the year 2023, the Red Cross chose the theme "I give with joy, and the joy I give is a reward." to eminded of the significance of compassion, love, affection, support, and treatment on this day.
