The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Zamboanga City Chapter is gearing up for the celebration of Blood Donors Month next month.
PRC Zamboanga City Chapter Administrator Victor Liozo Jr., said the activity gives recognition to all blood donors, sponsors, and PRC supporters.
The blood donors month is celebrated by virtue of Presidential Proclamation 1021 dated June 09, 1997 and the implementing Rules and Regulation of the National Blood Service Act of 1994.
The theme for this year’s Blood Donors Month celebration is “Every Blood Donor is a Hero”.
The objective of the celebration is to increase awareness about the benefits of voluntary blood donation and to strengthen partnership among implementing agencies.
The activity will kick-off on July 2 with a mass at Pasonanca Church followed by a motorcade along the city’s major streets going to the Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative (Zamcelco) multipurpose hall for the program and blood donation.
This event will be joined by other agencies like the Department of Health, PRC, Hospitals, and other agencies.
The office is targeting to collect 300 to 400 units of blood for the entire month of July. Liozo is expecting an increase of blood supply after the celebration.
Liozo again stressed that donating blood is good for the health.
Aside from the Blood Donors Month, Science Month, Nutrition Month, and Disaster Conciousness Month are also being celebrated in the month of July.
