MLUILLIER envisioned to be part and continue the humanitarian pledge, together with the OPEC SANDUGO organized the program with the Philippine Red Cross – Tagbilaran partnership last February 23.
The program was held at Training Center of MLHUILLIER Tagbilaran 4 branch in J.A, Clarin St., Tagbilaran City. OPEC Sandugo organization headed by OPEC Adviser Teofila Sirajam and Regional Manager Eric Boyles. They had invited Dr. Teresita Lim, MD Jay Quimson and PRC Tagbilaran Staff for the Operational procedures.
OPEC Officers, Riza Cruda, Dale Jane Agustin and Julius Villas hanged-up the Tarpaulin outside so that volunteers pass by can see and lead them to join us. Volunteers usually are drivers of some passenger vehicle of the City as well as our own MLHUILLIER employees namely, Jose Fedirico Bordios Jr., Edimar Sendrijas, Julcarl Namoc, Robel Acosta, MLHUILLIER Area Manager Julius Barriga and other rest whio would be considered hero donors. They had sacrificed to donate some amounted to an averages of 250ML of their blood. After their operations, the donors had free snacks, lunch as well as free MLHUILLIER t-shirt to serve as an appreciation to their humanitarian effort.
The PRC Tagbilaran also extended their operations such as offering some free blood pressure taking to those who want to know their blood pressure status. The program had dismissed at around 4pm in the afternoon and it was so successful.
The participants felt good to be part of this activity where they not only can make a difference but one can help a lot to the foundation. The donation of blood ensured a huge impact to Department of Health. The department will surely have a lot of helping hands in the future.
According to the Wikipedia, Blood-letting is the withdrawal of blood from a patient to prevent or cure illness and disease. It was based on an ancient system of medicine in which blood and other bodily fluids were regarded as “humours” that had to remain in proper balance to maintain health. As what we have seems it is sort of a humanitarian help for those who would be needed it for the future such diseases as Malaria or Dengue infection.
The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) started its history via influence of Spaniards then until February 17, 1899 encouraged by Apolinario Mabini then on and on by our national heroes. Now, on our present time particularly on year 2004 they introduced the Chairmanship of Senator Richard “Dick” J. Gordon as actress Rosa Rosal sat as Board of Governor.
