KAPATID: A Blood Donation Drive by UP PMS and UP RCY

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

From a single blood donation, up to 3 fellow Filipinos in need can be helped. Patients with severe blood loss, leukemia patients, hemophilia patients, mothers experiencing complications at birth, major trauma patients, transplant patients, and many others can benefit from donated blood. Unfortunately, blood donations have fallen by 29% in 2020 due to the effects of the COVID pandemic and lockdown. Our already struggling supply is at critically low levels.

At the start of the new year, UP Pre-Medical Society and UP Red Cross Youth have come together to hold their first blood donation drive of 2023 at the University of the Philippines. Diliman. KAPATID, A Blood Donation Drive, is a one-day event that aims to encourage and provide an opportunity to donate to would-be blood donors. All donated blood will go to our partner blood bank at the Philippine Red Cross. Help us save lives and join UP PMS and UP RCY as we come together to help our fellow Filipinos.

When: January 14, 2023 - Saturday

Time: 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Where: UP Film Center, Film Institute at the University of the Philippines, Diliman

A blood donation drive is an opportunity for healthy Filipinos of different ages and backgrounds to come together and help their fellow kababayans. KAPATID aims to foster a sense of family and togetherness as we rise from the COVID-19 pandemic and overcome the challenges it brought. By working together to contribute to the shortage of blood supply, we can give life to those in need.

Anyone is welcome to come to the UP Film Center, Film Institute at the University of the Philippines, Diliman to donate this January 14 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Blood donors must be 16 to 60 years old, weigh at least 50kg, and have normal vital signs during the day of the blood donation drive.

Join us and bring your friends, parents, and kapatid to celebrate life and family and help our fellow Filipinos. Learn more about the event and stay tuned for more updates and information on our Facebook page. Together, let’s give it life one drop of blood at a time!
