City Health organizes bloodletting activity

In an effort to strengthen health service delivery as anchored on Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan’s platform of governance “Serbisyo panlawas papakusgon”, the City Health Office took the lead in the recent bloodletting activity last September 08, 2015 with the assistance of Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center (EVRMC) in Tacloban City.

Led by Dr. Randy Saavedra of EVRMC, the said blood drive was able to gather blood donations from more than 50 Catbaloganons of various blood types, which will be stored at EVRMC’s blood bank ready to cater to not only for Catbaloganons but for all those in need.

Each donor received a free meal and a gift pack containing kilos of rice and several canned goods in exchange for the voluntary service.

The said bloodletting activity was the second for this year that was organized by the city government carrying the theme “Dugo Mo, Kinabuhi Ko; Dugo hin Paglaum para ha mga Catbaloganon”.
