Blood summit in PPP program's list-A A +A
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
"BLOOD offering" will now be part of the City Government's public-private partnership (PPP) program, City Councilor Dante Pajo said, after the success of the first blood summit on Tuesday at the City Hall of Cagayan de Oro.
Pajo said more than 300 blood donors donated blood during the said activity.
"The City Government will ensure the continued campaign for blood donations in order to produce sufficient and safe blood supply for the people in the city," Pajo said.
Aside from the yearly blood-letting activity, Pajo said the blood summit will now become a regular activity of the City Government, whenever there is PPP in every barangay.
"Our team will also conduct bloodletting activities to address the scarcity of blood," Pajo said.
Pajo guarantees that all of the donated blood will be properly screened before it will be turned over to the blood banks.
While the blood supply is available to everyone, Pajo said the city residents will be the priority to avail it.
