Mass Blood Donation Campaign
This is a one-day event in collaboration with the Local Government Unit of Palompon, Human Resource for Health of the Department of Health, and the Blood Bank Team of the Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center.
Scarcity of blood supply has been a problem in our country as well as the spread of blood-borne diseases. Five blood-borne diseases are detected during blood screening. Undeniably, blood can prolong life if given properly and with precautionary measures. Since the implementation of Republic Act No. 7719 otherwise known as “Blood National Services Act of 1994 “, donating blood voluntarily in our beloved municipality of Palompon has been strongly encouraged, advocated, and implemented annually in order to help our constituents in times of need during their hospitalization and in times of disasters.
