Apalit, Pampanga Philippines [12/13/2015]. Quarterly blood donation. 5,000 bags. This prompted the Philippine Blood Center‘s Dugong Bayani Award to recognize a truly dedicated group.
On December 13, 2015, the Members Church of God International conducted a nationwide blood-letting at the ADD Convention Center Apalit, Pampanga.
More than 201 waited in line but only 146 had passed, 49 failed and 6 were underweight. There are still many volunteers but due to insufficient blood bags, many requested for an additional for the next event.
Ang Dating Daan and The Department of Health (DOH) ties up providing information dissemination for people to be aware and enjoy the quality of life they deserve.
As early as 8 a.m. volunteers are already up to operate. One of the donors stand up in line to wait for his turn. When asked how he felt,
“Masaya dahil malilinis mapapalitan ng bagong dugo ang katawan at higit sa lahat nakatulong ka pa sa mga taong nangangailangan ng dugo.”
For 4 consecutive year, the Members Church of God International (MCGI) received the Jose Rizal Award for the Dugong Bayani last December 2, 2015.
Until next blood-letting!
