SGS Signed Up a MOA with Philippine Red Cross
SGS Philippines has recently signed up a MOA with the Philippine Red Cross for a sustainable partnership and committed support in blood donation activities.
The MOA enables SGS Philippines employees to donate blood through PRC’s mobile blood donation program and in return, SGS employees and their families can have access to the blood bank with ease in emergency cases anytime and anywhere.
This blood donation activity is set to be a regular activity between SGS Philippines and the Philippine Red Cross to ensure continuous availability and supply of blood units for all Filipinos in need.
Alongside the blood donation activity, the PRC team provided blood-related medical check-ups to all donors. This included blood type checking, hemoglobin status and overall health check. In certain cases, PRC’s medical officers provided the donor with free consultation and counseling.
The first mobile blood donation activity was held last October 25, 2019 at the SGS Philippines, Makati Head Office. It was well attended by the SGS employees with a high success rate having 31 successful donors. Watch out for the next blood donation activity in 2020.
