MOBILE BLOOD DONATION ADVOCACY
1st QUARTER 2020
During the first quarter of 2020, CRMC- Blood Center was able to conduct thirteen (13) MBD advocacies. But with our current situation, COViD-19 has given negative impact on the number of MBDs being conducted. With this, Blood Center took the initiative to include COViD-19 orientation into its advocacies.
The CRMC- Blood Center is mandated to maintain an adequate supply of blood thru 100% Voluntary Non-Remunerable Blood Donation. The Mobile Blood Donation (MBD) advocacy plays a vital role in encouraging and recruiting individuals to be voluntary blood donors.
But with the situation we are in, COViD-19 has brought scare and greatly affected the number of MBDs being conducted, within and outside the city. A lot of our partners cancelled their scheduled MBD activity. MBD is one of the essential health programs that must be continued, especially in crises like this. Thus, the CRMC- Blood Center intensified its advocacies and took the initiative to include COViD-19 orientation. Assurance was given to partners that preventive measures are being practiced by the Blood Center Staff in conducting MBDs during this pandemic.
Within the 1st quarter of 2020, Blood Center was able to conduct thirteen (13) MBD advocacies. These were conducted at Notre Dame-RVM College of Cotabato, Local Government Unit of South Upi, Maguindanao, different barangays in Cotabato City, and also with our men in uniform of 12 RCDG at PC Hill, Cotabato City.
The CRMC-Blood Center always finds ways to give blood to those who need it most especially during this time.
