RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – Ang paglawak ng naaabot ng mga napagkakalooban ng mga serbisyo publiko ng estasyon.

Dito sa Brazil, hindi lamang mga balita at impormasyon ang hatid ng UNTV para sa ating mga kasangbahay na mga Pilipino at mga Bresileiro kundi lalo na ang serbisyo publiko.

Sa pangunguna ni Mr.Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon, ang UNTV Brazil ay nagsagawa ng blood donation katuwang ang Members Church of God International sa pangunguna naman ni Brother Eli Soriano.

“Parabens UNTV!” (congratulations UNTV!), pahayag ng mga Brasileirong blood donor.

“Any volunteer that contributing blood is the most enormous gesture that anyone can do….you are contributing to life”, ani Flavio Franco ng Red Cross International.

Ang isang bag ng ating dugo ay maaaring makapagsagip ng 3 o 4 na buhay ng ating kapwa taong nangangailangan nito.

Kaya naman, ang mga miyembro ng Church of God International ng Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, hindi pinalampas ang pagkakataong makabahagi sa proyektong ito .

“Nagpapasalamat kami sa Dios sa pagkakataong naririto kami sa pamamagitan ng Pangunguna nina Brother Eli at Brother Daniel, natutunan namin ang ganitong mga bagay para makatulong sa ibang mga tao. Salamat sa Dios sa pagkakataon at muli ay may pagkakataon kami na makatulong sa iba…salamat sa Dios” (We would like to thank God for this opportunity with the leadership of Brother Eli and Brother Daniel, we learned to donate blood and help other people. Thanks be to God), saad ng isang Brasileirong blood donor na si Joao Paulo Chaves.

Ikinatuwa naman ni Philippine Ambassador to Brasil Eva Betita ang proyektong ito ng mga Pilipino dito sa South America.

“Mabuhay ang UNTV at sana ay magpatuloy kayo sa inyong mga gawain na hindi lamang mga Pilipino ang mga nakikinabang kundi ang mga Brasileiro at alam ko na ang programa ninyo ay hanggang sa Latin America ay nakakaabot…mabuhay ang UNTV..”

“It is a pleasure to have you here in Brazil, and I congratulate you for 10th anniversary… and now going abroad”, pahayag naman ni Henrique Eduardo Alves ng National Congress, Brazil.

Hanggang dito sa kabilang panig ng mundo, iba man ang lahi, iba man ang wika, malinaw na naiintindihan ang mga itinuturo at mga halimbawa ni Bro.Eli Soriano gaya ng pagtulong sa kapwa. (Dave Tirao, UNTV News)

PGH calls for blood donations as stock reaches critical level

Aileen Cerrudo   •   September 24, 2021

MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine General Hospital (PGH) is calling for blood donations to replenish its diminishing supply.

“The PGH blood stocks are in very critical levels,” the PGH said in its Facebook page.

PGH is encouraging voluntary, non-remunerated, non-pre deposit, non-replacement donors, in accordance with the Republic Act 7199: National Blood Services Act.

For interested donors, PGH is urging online scheduling. The blood donor center is open 7 days a week, including holidays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Interested donors would need to fill-out an online form for assessment.

For mobile blood drives, it can be coordinated through the UP-PGH Blood Bank. AAC

RT-PCR COVID-19 test not required for blood donors – DOH

Robie de Guzman   •   June 15, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Healthy individuals who wish to donate blood are not required to undergo a COVID-19 RT-PCR test and submit their negative results at blood banks, the Department of Health’s (DOH) National Voluntary Blood Services Program said on Tuesday.

During the Laging Handa public briefing, program manager Dr. Marites Estrella explained that eligible blood donors undergo pre-screening before they head to blood banks.

“Hindi na po natin kailangan ng RT-PCR Test para po mag-donate ng dugo kasi unang-una po ang mga nagdo-donate ng dugo ay yung mga healthy individuals lang,” Estrella said.

“Of course, yung health protocols natin kung ano yung mga symptoms ng COVID-19 at exposure nila, tinatanong na rin natin yan,” she added.

Estrella said that blood donors must be aged 18 and 65 years old, must weigh at least 50 kilograms and do not have co-morbidities. They must also be well hydrated, and have at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep before donating blood.

She advised those who wish to donate blood to call or coordinate with nearest blood center for the pre-screening.

Estrella said blood donations declined by 22 percent in 2020 following the imposition of community quarantine restrictions in the country due to the coronavirus pandemic.

From 1.38 million units of blood in 2019, she said only 1.04 million units of blood were collected last year.

“Ang atin kasing suplay ng dugo dapat one percent of the total population… Bumaba po ang collection natin ng dugo mula po ng magkaroon tayo ng lockdowns at mayroon po tayong restrictions,” she said.

Estrella added that donated blood units are used for individuals undergoing dialysis and other patients in need of transfusion.

“Mayroon tayong mga pasyente na nagka-COVID na nagda-dialysis araw-araw, mayroon tayong mga bumaba ang hemoglobin at kailangan nilang salinan… Bumaba ang platelet na kailangan din pong salinan depende po iyan,” she said.

To address declining donated blood supplies, Estrella said the DOH has adjusted its policies by intensifying its blood services network with other concerned agencies.

“Kung wala pong type A doon sa isang hospital at mayroong maraming type A doon sa pangalawang hospital, yun po ay nagsi-share sila para lang po matugunan ang pangangailangan ng ating mga pasyente sa kanilang transfusion ng dugo bawa’t araw,” she said.

The DOH encouraged the public, especially young people, to donate blood to ensure adequate supply amid the pandemic.  RRD (with details from Correspondent Janice Ingente)

The legacy continues as Members, Church of God International (MCGI) provided free breakfast with coffee to the residents of Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City.

Breakfast is dubbed as the most important meal of the day but, sadly, not everyone is able to take it.

Some would need to get to work early, skipping breakfast; while others don’t have enough to make or buy one.

In the spirit of helping others and sharing kindness, the MCGI in Pasig City offered free breakfast, KAPI Breakfast, to the people of Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City.

MCGI District Coordinator Bro. Melvin Arbo said they have prepared one of Filipinos favorite breakfast meal.

“Mayroong itlog – scrambled eggs, tatlong katamtamang size ng pandesal na siguro sapat na iyon para sa isang ordinaryong tao. Tatlong pandesal okay na iyon good to go na iyon for breakfast at may kasamang kape din iyon, (There are eggs- scrambled eggs, three medium-sized pandesal which I think would be enough for an individual. Three pcs of pandesal, that is already good for breakfast. We also gave coffee),” he said.

Around 250 Pinagbuhatan residents received the free breakfast. Rowena Palacio, one of the recipients is grateful for MCGI’s initiative.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Dios at naalala niyo po kami. Sa grupo niyo po maraming salamat po. MCGI po salamat sa Dios (I thank God that you thought of us. To your group, thank you. MCGI, thanks be to God),” she said. AAC (with reports from Lucille Lloren)
