Cavite forensics unit donates blood for indigent patients

IMUS CITY, Cavite (PIA) – The Cavite Provincial Forensic Unit (CPFU) has turned over 60 bags of blood to a blood bank that caters to poor and underprivileged patients.

The blood was collected during the recently concluded bloodletting activity.

The activity, which was the ninth of a bi-yearly program, was participated in by officers from the CPFU, Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), Naval Reserve Command, and various civil society and volunteer organizations.

According to CPFU chief Lt. Col. Oliver Dechitan, the event was inspired by his personal experience which led him to organize the activity twice a year to cater to the needs of the poor citizens who are in dire need of blood in times of emergency.

“We would like the public to know, especially those who are in dire need of blood, that [CPFU] do not just resolve crime, but we are also committed to help the public progress,” Dechitan said.

Each blood bag weighs 440cc each and were stored in the blood bank of Ospital ng Imus which are ready to be used by disadvantaged patients who will need urgent blood supply.

Dechitan vows that the advocacy of the unit will persist for more years to come, as they celebrate the nearly five year anniversary of helping the poor and disadvantaged sectors in the province through advocacy and outreach programs. (RF/PIA-Cavite)
