MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – The Association of Barangay Councils in Cebu City has so far collected 139 blood units during a series of mobile blood donation campaigns initiated in the different barangays this month.
The “Dugo Mo, Kinabuhi Ko” campaign is done in partnership with the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center-Blood Services Unit.
An advisory that was posted on its official Facebook page says that the association attracted 270 blood donors less than a month since the start of its blood donation drive. As of June 6, 139 of these passed the screening process and were able to donate blood.
“Every blood unit that passes the laboratory screening process can save up to 3 lives,” the advisory reads.
