Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO— In line with the city’s agenda “Malu­sog na Fer­nandino, Masiglang Pa­mu­muhay ay sig­u­rado,” the City Gov­ern­ment of San Fer­nando con­ducted its third blood-let­ting project dubbed “Dugo Ko, Karug­tong ng Buhay Mo” on Septem­ber 15.

Or­ga­nized by the City Health Of­fice in part­ner­ship with Jose B. Lin­gad Re­gional Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal, the ac­tiv­ity was par­tic­i­pated in by lo­cal gov­ern­ment unit em­ploy­ees and uni­formed per­son­nel of the Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice and Bureau of Fire Pr ot ect i on.

Blood Nurse Co­or­di­na­tor Cyn­thia Marie Fabian said the city tar­gets to col­lect blood bags equiv­a­lent to the one per­cent of the city’s pop­u­la­tion ev­ery year.

“Mahigit 3,000 po ang kailan­gan nat­ing makolekta para ma­punan yung pan­gan­gailan­gan natin sa dugo dito sa buong syu­dad pero hindi po natin naabot ito dahil konti lang yung mga nag­dodonate,” she added.

In an in­ter­view, Mayor Ed­win “EdSa” San­ti­ago urged all phys­i­cally qual­i­fied Fer­nandi­nos to do­nate blood and make it a reg­u­lar habit as this is ben­e­fi­cial not only to the re­cip­i­ent but also to the donor.

the gov­ern­ment com­mits it­self to de­sign­ing and im­ple­ment­ing ap­pro­pri­ate poli­cies, pro­grams, and projects for the next six years that will bring the Philip­pines closer to what we Filipinos en­vi­sion our coun­try to be,” San­tos fur­thered.

Since there is still much to be done, the gov­ern­ment needs all the sup­port and help it can get from var­i­ous sec­tors and stake­hold­ers.

San­tos chal­lenged the pub­lic to be part, not only of the vi­sion­ing, but also to work hard and serve as ac­tive part­ners for change in turn­ing this vi­sion into con­crete ac­tions.
