Philippine Red Cross and City of Malabon University (CMU) organized a bloodletting activity in partnership with the local government on February 26, 2023, Sunday. The event took place at the university grounds and CMU Hall, where the CMU community actively participated.
Dr. Porfirio Catolico Jr., the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies and National Service Training Program (NSTP) Director, delivered opening remarks and addressed the sponsors. Mayor Jeannie Sandoval, Atty. Maricar Torres and former Congressman Ricky Sandoval, Chairperson of the Red Cross Malabon chapter, also gave their welcoming remarks and encouraged all CMU students to join the blood donation program or volunteer with the Red Cross.
During the bloodletting activity, potential donors underwent screening to ensure their eligibility for blood donation.
Once again, Mayor Jeannie Sandoval thanked City of Malabon University for its active participation in the bloodletting activity that brings people together to support a common cause, which is to “Raise awareness about the importance of blood donation and encourage more people to donate blood.”
