Thailand found 1st COVID-19 patient in January. Until now, we have nearly 3,000 people infected. As a youth volunteer of the Thai Red Cross Youth Bureau, I decided to volunteer to campaign for blood donation in Samutprakan province, because many people are afraid of donating blood at the hospital due to this information about COVID-19 situation. This circumstance resulted in insufficient blood supply so the Thai Red Cross chapter of Samutprakan province decided to organize a special blood donation unit at the office of the Thai Red Cross chapter of Samutprakan province. Moreover, I also volunteered to make face shields and masks to deliver to doctors and medical staff and the poor. Aside from that, I also produced videos and delivered snacks to encourage medical staff. Even though I didn’t help on the frontline, I’m still glad to be part of the Red Cross family to help people affected by COVID-19 pandamic.
