Comval celebrates Blood Donor’s month through blood letting
Davao De Oro Provincial capitol employees donated blood during the blood letting program conducted by the Provincial Health Office (PHO) in the Capitol lobby, Cabidianan, Nabunturan, Comval on July 9, 2018.
”Ang pinaka main purpose gyud nako nganong gapakuha ko’g dugo kay para makatabang ko sa mga nanginahanglan. Ika-duha, naay health benefits nga makuha atong lawas. Ug karon nasanayan na gyud nako na magpakuha og dugo kada naay blood letting na mahitabo,” said George Duran, one of the blood donors.
The said activity is in line with the National Blood Donor’s month with the theme, “Be there for someone else. Give blood. Share Life.”
Every year, Comval conducts series of blood letting activities in the different area in the province. As a result, Comval has been a consistent recipient of National Sandugo Award since 2009.
The Department of Health (DOH) conferred the National Sandugo Award to those Local Chief Executives who deliver extra excellent performance in the implementation of the National Voluntary Blood Services Program in their respective areas of responsibility.
With this, Comval Blood Program Coordinator, Leonardo Merced Jr. encourages everyone to donate blood, “Ako’ng gina-awhag ang matag-usa nga mag donate og dugo, ilabi na katong wala pa ka donar. Kay dili lang ta makatabang sa pagsalbar sa kinabuhi sa uban; kita mismo aduna pud makuha nga health benefits ani.” (Sheldane Mahinay // ID Comval)
