Several volunteers representing the Sangguniang Kabataan, non-government organizations and 30 barangays participated in the bloodletting activity for the 1st quarter of 2021 at the Liga ng mga Barangay Dumaguete Chapter last weekend.
Liga ng mga Barangay President Dionie Amores lauded the blood donors for their selfless acts and credited the Philippine National Red Cross for its constant support to a very noble activity that helps save lives.
The collected blood bags are stored in the Red Cross facility, which can be requested and availed principally to assist indigent patients in need of blood transfusion.
Requests for blood can be made before the office of the Liga ng mga Barangay and only requires the requesting party to find a donor to replenish the supply.
