Last September 7, a life-saving act through bloodletting activity once again opened to QCians since the pandemic struck two years ago. In partnership with the Philippines Red Cross – QC Chapter, the event took place at Quezon City University (QCU) main campus – administration building lobby.
University President Dr. Theresita V. Atienza herself had donated at the blood drive, as well as Dr. Bradford Antonio C. Martinez, VP for Academic Affairs.
“For us to be able to help others who are in need of blood- many patients na nangangailangan ng dugo, natural illnesses, accidents, mga leukemic patients… even ngayon ‘yong dengue, mataas yung cases natin….(para) matugunan iyong kanilang need sa kanilang dugo” shares Donor Recruitment Officer, Ms. Maria Carlosa D. Ancheta.
A total of 51 bags were collected by the Red Cross which will be utilized for blood service facilities. Qualified bag donors received a donor’s card, small tokens, and a heartfelt thank you.
