The Guanzon Group is once again sounding off its urgent call to action: GIVE BLOOD.
The WHO records the need for 117 million blood transfusions worldwide every year. Developing countries need it most for treating pregnancy and anemia related medical cases, as well as for most major surgeries.
The lockdown has suddenly brought us to a new way of life, filled with both uncertainties and fear. Industries across the globe had to stop their factories, and manufacturers have rushed to make facemasks and other protective equipment for health workers and at-risk members of society. Scientists are in a mad rush to manufacture a cure and a vaccine for Covid19. Mankind is capable of achieving this feat, sooner or later.
Yet, despite all our advances in science and technology, man is still UNABLE TO MANUFACTURE BLOOD. The only source of blood, is the supply that comes from donors.
With the slow easing of the lockdown in our country, The Guanzon Group in collaboration with the Philippine Red Cross is calling on all capable blood donors to enlist with us thru any of our Guanzon branches in Dagupan or Calasiao, and schedule their preferred donation date.
To comply with physical distancing and health standards, blood donations will be on a strictly scheduled basis, every Saturday, 2-4pm, at Pedritos Restaurant, Tapuac, Dagupan City. We can not yet accomodate walk-in donors.
By giving our blood, we are giving a part of our life fo save another person’s. This is the highest form of a hero.
Donate now. Be a blood hero.
