Cambodia Red Cross (CRC) staff took part in a mass blood donation on March 27 to

highlight the lack of blood supplies for transfusions. Numerous health issues

such as hemorrhagic dengue fever and landmine accidents require blood

transfusions to keep patients alive, but current donations meet only one-third

start of an ongoing initiative to encourage voluntary blood donation from all

sectors of society. CRC president Bun Rany Hun Sen was unable to attend.
