Bombo Radio Baguio Station Manager Eddie Carta said for Baguio, beneficiaries of the project are the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Baguio and Benguet Chapters.

Annie Tamayo, PRC Baguio Administrator said that the screened blood will help a lot of patient especially that there are still dengue cases.

Dugong Bombo should be replicated in the barangays. We should encourage blood donation so that we have abundant supply as a lot of patients need blood, Tamayo said.

Tamayo explained that they are not selling blood at PRC. what we charging are the processing and laboratory fee in screening the blood, she said.

Walk-in donors can go to any PRC office if they were not to join the Dugong Bombo. A person who is healthy, aged 18 to 65 years can donate blood every three months. (PIA) [top]
