JOURNALISTS based in Manila will conduct a bloodletting activity to donate fresh blood to wounded soldiers in the ongoing Marawi City siege.
“Actually it will be our second bloodletting activity. This time we have identified the soldiers in Marawi City as direct beneficiaries. It is our small way of helping our heroes,” Manila Police District Press Corps (MPDPC) president Mel Layson of Pilipino Star Ngayon said.
Layson is asking even non-journalists to join the bloodletting activity slated on July 22 at the Manila Police District multi-purpose hall along United Nations Avenue in Ermita, Manila.
The program is in coordination with the Philippine National Red Cross, Manila Police District and the Philippine Coast Guard.
The first bloodletting activity of MPDPC collected some 135 bags of various blood types.
