A team from the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) headed by Ms. Connie Nibaten conducted the National Voluntary Blood Service Program orientation held last May 30, 2013 at DILG-CAR.


BGHMC is implementing again its Mobile Blood Collection under the said program which aims to gain support from qualified Filipino citizens by donating blood without expecting remuneration but the joy and satisfaction of helping save lives. The team is going around government offices to encourage blood donation from its employees. Collection of blood will be done at their respective offices without having to go to the hospital.


Those who signified their intention to donate blood will be scheduled for screening and qualified donors will then be giving their preferred schedule for blood collection. This activity was conducted in connection with DILG-CAR’s Gender and Development (GAD) Program.
