NABUNTURAN, Compostela Valley, August 29 – – Three provincial government employees were given certificates of recognition as “Blood Galloner” in their support to the bloodletting program during the regular convocation on August 22, 2017 at the Capitol lobby.
“Offering something without expecting any in return is a true essence of volunteerism,” said Provincial Health Office (PHO) Assistant Department head, Dr. Mary Cyrel Pasaol.
The top three donor employees were Emma Resurrection, Dr. Georgie Arvin Legazpi, both of PHO and Rolino Palma of Provincial General Services Office. They will also receive 1 sack of rice each.
As the top “Blood Galloners,” they have consistently donated nine times without lapses of 500cc (cubic centimeters) bags of blood through the bloodletting activities conducted by the PHO.
The advocacy to donate blood, through the Provincial Voluntary Blood Services Program (PVBSP), continues as the need for blood is constant. It serves not only in Comval but also includes the neighboring cities and provinces of this region. (Jazel Sarte//ids comval)
