De La Salle University Medical Center (DLSUMC) was the site of a blood donation drive on January 19 for its elderly patients in the Service Ward.

 

 

 

Initiated by the World Mission Society Church of God,  the blood drive aimed to help elderly patients who need blood transfusion due to various illnesses, as well as promote awareness on how the blood that one donates can save lives aside from the healthy benefits that a donor enjoys.

 

 

 

The Blood Bank has reported that a total of 44 bags of 450 cc. blood were collected from the volunteers during this event.
