House Deputy Speaker and District I Representative Beng Climaco will turnover today P1 million worth of equipment to the Philippine Red Cross Zamboanga Chapter as she vows to continuously assist and help improve services of the premiere humanitarian agency.

The turnover will coincide with the inauguration and ceremonial turnover this afternoon of the newly-constructed Red Cross office funded by the city government.

The equipment, requested by the local PRC will help in the swift delivery of services among Zamboangueños and the nearby provinces to ensure that the processing of all blood samples and blood requirements for patients are safely done and carried out with utmost quality and hygiene.

“With the recent rise of dengue cases in our city, the Red Cross had played an important role in making sure that blood is available for the transfusions needed by our patients. I am hopeful that with the provision of new equipment, we shall be secured with safe blood being given out to our patients,” Cong. Climaco stressed.

The three equipment include 1 unit of hematology analyzer, 1 unit plasma thawer and 1 unit tachometer.

Cong. Climaco is a galloner and had been a regular blood donor of the Red Cross.

The lady solon has also enjoined other people to regularly donate blood and has initiated on regular basis the conduct of blood letting activities in partnership with various groups.

Congresswoman Climaco has emphasized that the support to the Red Cross seeks to complement the effort of the local government to help in the efficient carrying out the duties of all agencies. — Marvin Segura
