The Quezon provincial government has called on residents to join its celebration of World Blood Donor Day.

The province will hold a blood donation drive on June 16 at the Quezon Convention Center.

It will have the theme “Donating blood is an act of solidarity. Join the effort and save lives,”

In a Facebook post, it underscored the importance of blood donation to saving lives.

“Ang pagbibigay ng dugo sa munting minuto at oras para sa ating kapwa ay nakakapagbigay ng dagdag na minuto, oras, buwan at maraming taon sa isang buhay kasama ang kanilang pamilya,” it said.

It called for volunteers to join the event.

“Kaya Samahan nyo po kame sa aming layunin na mas marami pang matulungan dahil hindi magiging matagumpay ang gawaing ito kung walang mga magigiting na Blood Donor na katulad nyo,” it said.

Those who want to donate blood need to eat and drink water before going to the venue.

They must also get 6 to 8 hours of sleep beforehand and must not have a cough, cold, fever, sore throat, and diarrhea.

They must weigh 50 kilos or higher and must not have drunk alcohol in the past 24 hours.

They must not take any pain reliever, antibiotics, and any drug that could harm the recipient of the blood donation.
