Bauang MBC Conducts Mass Bloodletting

Written by Myrna G. Romero   

Give freely; Give often, Blood donation matters. With this in mind, a mass bloodletting was conducted by the Municipal Blood Council (MBC) headed by Mayor Eulogio Martin Clarence P. de Guzman III in cooperation with Department of Health (DOH) and Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) at Sacred Heart School, Bauang, La Union, November 13, 2015.

Congressman Emmanuel Francisco R. Ortega III, Abono Party List thanked the Municipality of Bauang for coming up with a noble program that helps in prolonging the lives of the sick especially the poor and the marginalized.

294 blood donors from Philippine National Police of the Regional Training Center in Aringay and from the different barangays of Bauang registered, 128 at PNRC and 166 at the Ilocos Training Regional Center. Only 172 were qualified donors. 170 bags of blood were extracted.

Every month except December and April, MBC conducts bloodletting because there are many lives which are saved through this blood activity. These bags of blood are alternately donated to ITRMC and to PNRC.

The bloodletting program was the brain child of Vice Mayor Bonifacio Malinao. Later, it was taken over by the MBC of Bauang.
The mass bloodletting is conducted every November to coincide with the birthdays of the two local town executives, Mayor Martin, November 2 and Vice Mayor Malinao, November 15. They believed that their birthdays will be more meaningful by coming out with the mass bloodletting.
