With the upcoming National Wellness Month in August, SCIC celebrated in advance with its recent bloodletting activity, held on July 22, 2022. In partnership with the Philippine Red Cross, employees from SCIC’s central office have participated in the activity. This year’s theme is “Donate Blood and Keep the World Beating”, which highlighted the significance of saving lives through blood donation and ensuring a healthy lifestyle.
With a total of 54 volunteers, the activity started in the morning with a registration, followed by an initial assessment screening. Afterwards, volunteers underwent a blood and medical evaluation to ensure the employee’s health and capability for blood donation.
By the end of the activity, 35 out of 54 volunteers were able to complete their blood extraction. The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) team extended their gratitude by giving three (3) vouchers to employees who will be needing blood.
Through the blood donation activity, SCIC promotes awareness in helping the community to provide readily available blood to those in need and keeping every employee’s health and overall wellness.
