Blood Donation Campaign
Dugo Nimo, Kinabuhi Nako. Blood is a vital commodity in the management of several illnesses and diseases such as dengue. Since the recent dengue outbreak, the blood supply in our storage facilities dramatically plummeted. Hence, patients who need to undergo planned treatment or urgent interventions go far and wide in search of safe donors, sometimes without luck. Having sufficient and readily available blood supply helps save the lives of many. And it could be ours or our family members’.
It is this intention that motivates us to advocate for blood donation. Thus, this September 30, 2019, in celebration of one strong advocator’s birthday: our First Lady town Municipal Mayor Myra Georgina L. Arevalo,M.D., the Local Government Unit of Palompon, its Municipal Health Office, and the Department of Health in partnership with the Province of Leyte, Philippine Red Cross and Dr. Manuel B. Veloso Memorial Hospital come together to conduct a Mass Blood Donation Campaign held @ Brgy. San Isidro Covered Court.
