Blood Donation in Catigbian Town

What a better way to show ones idea of the brotherhood in humanity than sharing one’s blood?

  Celebrating another milestone in the town’s history, Catigbian would be handling to Bohol health authorities bags of blood from volunteers who wish to make a difference to the lives of patients needing such help.

  At this year’s Katigbawan Festival, residents bank on their blood to save somebody else’s life. This as authorities expect 120 blood donors from different barangays to submit themselves voluntarily to a cause they have committed to support. 

  On June 17, 2008, volunteers are expected to troop to the Catigbian Business Activity Center, where the Blood Coordinating Council of Gov. Celestino Gallares Hospital, Tagbilaran City with the assistance of the Municipal Health Staff and some personnel from the Catigbian District Hospital will be waiting for them.

  When the idea of a Voluntary Blood Donation (VBD) first came, no other than Mayor Roberto Salinas personally and willingly modeled the program and submitted himself to the health personnel during the first bloodletting event, three years ago, Catigbian sources said. 

  The program also happens to be the Department of Health’s venue of ensuring that distribution of blood supply and blood products are adequate, safe, affordable and equitable at local blood banks.

  Doctors have also said that regular bloodletting events are healthful means of giving out blood compared to commercialized blood donation.

  Earlier, the personnel at the Municipal Health Office has spread advocacies on the VBD in the barangays.

  Because of such, barangay captains have coordinated recruitment of blood donors through community and purok meetings. 

  This year, blood donors from different barangays need not come with tentative health concerns having been advised of the advantages and benefits of the activity.

"That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved."
