‘Sagip Buhay’ bloodletting set on Jan 21

by Joseph B Zambrano

BAGUIO CITY, Jan. 14 (PIA) -- A mass bloodletting donation activity dubbed “Tambalang Sagip Buhay, Karamay Habang Buhay Part III” will be conducted at the city’s Malcolm Square on Saturday, January 21.

Now on its third staging, the activity is in cooperation with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) - Baguio and E Carta Media Production and Promotions, Z Radio, and other agencies.

“Blood is life, that is why I call all able bodied people to come and donate blood. Who knows, the life you’re saving might be a friend or a relative,” said Eddie Carta, a board member of the PRC-Baguio Chapter.

We saw the success and the eagerness of the people to help by donating blood with the first and second Tambalang Sagip Buhay last year, Carta said.

‘We hope we have more blood donors, volunteers, and sponsors to support this worthy cause,” he added.

Annie Tamayo, PRC-Baguio administrator, said the donated blood will help a lot of patients especially with dengue cases needing blood.

With the third Tambalang Sagip Buhay, we are asking the usual support of everyone, Tamayo said.

She again clarified that PRC is not selling blood; what is being charged are the processing and laboratory fee in screening the blood.(JDP/JBZ-PIA CAR)
