Palawan Daily News - - City - By Kia Jo­hanna Lamo

The city gov­ern­ment of Puerto Princesa signed a Mem­o­ran­dum Of Agree­ment (MOA) with the Philip­pine Red Cross for zero re­place­ment fee on blood do­na­tion from clients as it al­lot­ted P4.8 mil­lion for the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

This was an­nounced by city coun­cilor Nancy Socrates dur­ing a press con­fer­ence as she stated that there will be no pro­cess­ing fees for blood do­na­tion.

“Tayo po ay lu­bos na nag­pa­pasala­mat sa at­ing city mayor dahil last week ay bu­ma­lik na po ang Mem­o­ran­dum Of Agree­ment between city gov­ern­ment and Philip­pine Red Cross kung saan ay baba­yaran ng lung­sod ng Puerto Princesa ang pro­cess­ing fee para sa dugo.

So, na­pakalak­ing tu­long po ito,” Socrates said. She added that the Philip­pine Red Cross only asked for P1.5M bud­get from the city gov­ern­ment yet Mayor Bay­ron tripled it with a P4.8M bud­get. She also said that the city gov­ern­ment sees the project as one of the big­gest ways to help Puerto Princesa, which is through zero pro­cess­ing fee on blood do­na­tions. “Nakita po ni Mayor na this is where we can re­ally help our fel­low Puerto Prince­sans. Gi­nawa po ni Mayor na P4.8M ang bud­get,” she stated.
