Frat members donate blood to battle dengue


Members of the Tau Gamma Phi Fraternity from different chapters in the city recently joined the battle against dengue by donating blood to the Philippine National Red Cross.

The blood-letting program is also in partnership with the Sta. Maria Barangay Council headed by Chairman Justo Lacandalo.

Edgar L. Rebollos, Tau Gamma Phi member said it’s his way of helping victims of dengue fever.

“Third time ya este di mio dona sangre. Bueno el feeling. Fulfilling  kasi sabe yo na in my simple way ya pwede yo ayuda na otro”, (It’s my third time to donate blood. The feeling is nice. Fulfilling because I know in my simply way I am helping others.) he stated.

According to him, each chapter must have five to ten members who will donate blood.

Tau Gamma members from Western Mindanao State University, Ateneo de Zamboanga University, Zamboanga City Polytechnic College, Zamboanga City College of Marine Science and Technology, Summer Hill Chapter, San Roque, Pasonanca, and Baliwasan Chapters participated in the said activity.

Red Cross staff Reanne A. Gampa said the activity is Red Cross’ continuing campaign against dengue.

We are conducting this program to prevent further mortality caused by dengue”, she said.

Gampa added that there is increase in the demand of blood in hospitals and so the need for more blood donation activities. (Jaybilyn M. Tinguha-MVC/JMT/PIA9-Zambo City/WMSU)
