With Korea’s coronavirus situation becoming more and more difficult to control, those who need to receive a blood transfusion are having trouble doing so right at the moment. Therefore, the 10th Fighter Wing of the Republic of Korea Air Force recently donated 2,020 blood donor cards to the Korea Leukemia Patients Organization in Yeongdeungpo-gu. The soldiers said that they had been collecting the cards since October 2018, adding that the total amount of blood they donated will come to about 800,000 cc. With the strong belief that a small donation can make a big difference in a recipient’s life, they also said that they want to keep making blood donations.
