Legazpi City— DSWD Field Office V conducted a bloodletting activity last January 21, 2019 in connection with the DSWD 68th Anniversary Celebration.

The founding anniversary is observed every January. For the 68th anniversary, a bloodletting activity was facilitated by DSWD FO V Human Resource Welfare Section in collaboration with Philippine National Red Cross- Albay Chapter and Department of Health Regional Office V. This was simultaneously done by other Regional Offices all over the country.

22 eligible DSWD employees participated in the activity who were assessed during the registration process.

Regional Director Arnel B. Garcia encouraged the employees to join this advocacy to help save lives through blood donation.

“It is a rewarding experience for us because we can extend the life of others,” Dir. Garcia added.

Doctor Alan Lucañas, the team leader of the bloodletting activity, acknowledged this initiative and expressed interest to accept similar engagements with DSWD to augment the scarce blood supply.

All the DSWD blood donors received snacks and freebies from DOH and were excused at work to take a break after.
