Compostela Valley Province- The Provincial Health Office of Compostela Valley visits Lubi Beach Resort at Kopiat Island Mabini Comval to conduct Bloodletting activity on August 2, 2019.
This is part of the province’s Blood Sufficiency Program (BSP) spearheaded by the Provincial Health Office which has since been espoused by the former Governor Arturo T. Uy. Through his governance, the BSP was sustained and the Blood Collecting Team (BCT) was created doing everything to gain targets.
Challenged with the World Health Organization and Department of Health national standards of 1% of the total population, the province has exceeded its target blood collection to 2.4% earning national awards and recognition.
This time, PHO Comval with the cooperation of the Health Office of LGU Mabini concretely executed the theme “You make a difference in somebody’s life by donating blood. Every blood donor is a hero.”
Staff of the Lubi Beach Resort and the 71st battalion comprised the group of heroes who willingly donated their blood that could save the lives of many and more than 30 bags of blood were collected during the activity. In 2018, donation count reached 18,628 and continuously rising every year.
“Ang pinaka-main purpose is matabangan ang atong mga katawhan na blood is always available para sa tanan,” explained PHO Asst. Head Dr. Mary Cyrel G. Pasaol.
The bloodletting was also mentioned to be conducted twice every year at Lubi Beach Resort.
“Mao na among gina project dire sa Lubi at least twice every year and in fact naa pa pod lain nga ga-conduct like the Red Cross.” said Rey Edward Bullecer, the head security of Lubi Beach Resort.
Through the initiative and the leadership of Governor Tyron Uy, the Blood Sufficiency Program (BSP) of Compostela Valley will continue to sustain and provide service and volunteerism in blood collection. (Jasteen Abella, ID Comval)
