City Service Corporation participates in Bloodletting Program 2019
City Service participated in the Mass Blood Donation Program in 26 January 2019 at the Asian Institute of Maritime Studies in Pasay City. A total of 47 members volunteered and donated blood for the program. The Bloodletting Program is a project of the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary (PCGA) in cooperation with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC).
According to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC), a healthy individual may donate blood every three months. The whole process of blood donation, from the registration up to the recovery, can only take an average time of 30 minutes. Donating 450cc will not cause any ill effects or weakness. The human body has the capacity to compensate with the new fluid volume. Further, the bone marrow is stimulated to produce new blood cells which in turn makes the blood forming organs function more effectively.
