The Rural Health Unit (RHU) of Calaca, in cooperation with Batangas Medical Center, Provincial Health Office, Batangas Blood Council, Philippine Red Cross – Batangas City and Nasugbu, and Ospital ng Calaca, successfully conducted its annual blood donation activity last August 07, 2019.
As early as eight in the morning, posts were already set around the area to ensure orderliness in the process flow of the blood drive.
This year, 552 donors coming from forty (40) barangays of Calaca, locators, and nongovernment organizations graced the campaign with the theme, “Blood Olympics: Dugong Bigay, Dugtong Buhay”.
Moreover, the blood donors were also divided into two – the locators and the local blood donors – which made the process faster and organized.
“Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng mga dumalo ngayon at nag-donate ng kanilang dugo. Malaking tulong po para sa amin ang dugong bigay niyo. Kami po ay lubos na nagpapasalamat sa inyong walang sawang pagtulong sa ating mga kababayang nangangailangan.” Said Municipal Health Officer Marjolyne Sharon V. Ona, MD, as the event capped off.
This initiative was made possible by Mayor Sofronio C. Ona and was part of the local government unit’s commitment to help in saving more lives.
