A total of 63 bags of blood were collected from the different blood donors during the bloodletting program spearheaded by the Juanito I. King Foundation Inc. (JIKFI), in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross – Cebu Chapter last July 15 at Nito’s Auto Supply training room in Cebu City.
The donated blood would give hope to almost 200 people. In every bag of blood, three lives are saved.
Blood donors were composed of students from the Center for Industrial Technology and Enterprise (CITE) and employees of the Kings Group of Companies, namely Skygo Marketing Corp., Cebu Subzero Logistics Inc., Juanito King and Sons Inc. and Nito’s Auto Supply Inc.
Blood donation is beneficial for the donor as it reduces the risk of heart and liver ailments caused by iron overload in the body.
Donating blood does not just save other peoples’ lives but it also keep the donors’ well-being healthy.
