The Kalinga State University-Central Student Government (KSU-CSG) in partnership with the City Health Office initiated a three-day bloodletting activity today, (June 9) until June 11, at the KSU gymnasium.
According to Vincent Valenzuela, KSU-CSG President, this is part of their humanitarian endeavor to help save life through the donation of life-saving blood. He said that they are targeting at least 60 donors per day.
The Pag-asa Youth Association Federation, 503rd Infantry Brigade, Kalinga Provincial Police Office were invited and among the first to donate, along with other walk-in donors.
Josephine Omengan of the City Health Office said that the activity will ensure sufficient supply of blood in Tabuk City especially now that nearby facilities like the Cagayan Valley Medical Center has limited supply.
“Tatta ket adda latta met ti available nga blood, ngem gapu ta naibusan san ti CVMC isu nga ti i-kaskasta mi nu malpas, nga ma-test idiay (CVMC) ket i-pullout mi nga dagus tapnu adda latta supply tayu,” she said.
She added that minimum health protocols like wearing of face mask and social distancing are strictly observed in accordance with IATF guidelines. By Jayson Antonio
