Catbaloganon flocks blood donation drive

Nearly a hundred heroes supported the bloodletting activity organized by the Catbalogan City Health Office earlier today, March 28, 2019 at Cocina de Cabral, Catbalogan City.

From city employees to uniformed personnel to tricycle and motorcab drivers, the regular bloodletting was the first activity for this year and was assisted by the medical staff from the Samar Provincial Hospital, who collected the donations to be stored at their blood bank to be ready for medical emergencies.

Themed as “Find the Hero in You”, indeed these donors were heroes in many ways because a bag of blood can help many people in varying emergencies and moreover, regularly donating blood lowers your risks to heart diseases and even lowers risks to cancer as reported by various international studies.

Catbalogan City’s bloodletting activities were previously partnered with the blood bank in Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center (EVRMC) in Tacloban but with the upgraded and now available blood bank at the provincial hospital, patients need not go farther now to get through any medical needs.
