Phil. Red Cross is very close to my heart. I remember when I was in Grade 6, I enrolled in the First Aid course that was offered in our school. Phil. Red Cross facilitated that.
I also donated blood several times already. I know that donating blood can help many people. I do it yearly, someone told me kasi it's good to donate aside from helping other people but also in our body din, kasi mapapalitan ng bagong dugo yung katawan natin. ^_^
Last October 24, I was very lucky to be invited on the first ever Phil. Red Cross Bloggers Conference at the new PRC Tower in Boni, Mandaluyong City.
The program started with the opening remarks of Dr. Gwendolyn Pang. Then presentation of different programs and projects of Phil. Red Cross, presented by none other than Sen. Dick Gordon, PRC CHAIRMAN and CEO.
These are some of the topics: Safety Service, Volunteer services, Haiyan and the latest project, the MVR 3.
Let me photo blog the event:
