The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) is set to inaugurate its P6.9 Million new building on May 25 inside the PRC Compound at Pettit Barracks.
PRC Zamboanga City Chapter Administrator, Victor Liozo Jr. said the project started last year and only took 120 days to finish.
According to Liozo, city funds were used for the said purpose and the project was handled by the City Engineers Office.
The edifice to be inaugurated is a two-storey building complete with amenities to include a conference room, male and female quarters, disaster operation center, refreshment center and a bigger blood bank.
The construction of the building also paved the way for the conversion of the PRC Blood Bank into a Regional Blood Center for Zamboanga Peninsula.
Expected to attend the inauguration are PRC CEO Richard Gordon, PRC Secretary General Gwendolyn Pang, and Red Cross Governor and Zamboanga City Mayor Celso Lobregat.
Liozo said the new building will greatly help the PRC in delivering its six major services including blood program, Red Cross Youth, community health and nursing services, disaster management services, safety services and social services.
The PRC is recognized worldwide and the organization is anchored on its seven fundamental principles which are humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity, and universality.
