The Sangguniang Kabataan Federation has launched the Barangay Blood Directory to further improve access to blood supply and delivery of blood services to Zamboanguenos.

Councilor Joanna Mari Mas, the local SK federation president, said the first objective of the blood directory is aimed to provide an easy access to the residents in the barangays who might be in need of blood supplies.

Second, according to Mas, is to promote and encourage voluntary blood donation by the citizenry.

Lastly, she said, the project is to instill public consciousness of the principle of blood donation as a humanitarian act.

The launching of the project, which was launched in coordination with the Zamboanga City Blood Council, was held at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Paseo del Mar.

Mas spearheaded the launching where a ceremonial blood typing will also be conducted.
