Defensor Asks Mayors to Help Red Cross’ Blood Donation Drive

Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor, Sr. asked the mayors of 42 municipalities and one component city in the province to help the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) in its campaign for voluntary blood donation.
Defensor made the appeal after learning that the PRC has a limited supply of blood units in its blood bank due to lack of blood donors. Dr. Dennis Roy Pasadilla of the PRC-Iloilo Chapter, who appeared before the meeting of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP)-Iloilo Chapter at the Capitol on Tuesday (January 12) revealed that the province of Iloilo registered only 4,395 blood donors in 2015 which is way below their target of 19,441 blood donors
