CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- City of San Fernando Water District launched Friday its yearly bloodletting program with the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) chapter to contribute to blood-banking efforts and to promote healthy lifestyle among members.

Ogie Ocampo of the PNRC here told Sun.Star Pampanga that their group is tapping on partner institutions like the CSFWD to promote awareness on the importance of donating blood for emergency purposes.

He said the PNRC is tasked to maintain a steady supply of blood for the country, even providing certain support mechanism for indigents needing blood supply.

CSFWD general manager Jorge Gumba told Sun.Star Pampanga that the program reminds employees who donate to keep themselves healthy. He said that the program also promotes a sense of responsibility and awareness among employees.

He said such activities represent part of the corporate social responsibility of the CSFWD.

"We are not just a company; we are a socially involved and responsible company. Helping in PNRC activities is just a fraction of the total social works we are going to conduct in the coming months," Gumba said.

Such activities, he added, help their employees in realizing the value of helping others.

The CSFWD also involves its employees in socio-civic activities like calamity fund drives, medical missions and welfare programs for hospital patients and victims of calamities.

The water utility had recently involved itself with the Performance Governance System embracing good governance initiatives through corporate management.
