Weeks prior, the brethren volunteered to enlist as blood donors. On the actual day of the humanitarian event, they underwent the mandatory health screening to make sure that they qualify as donors. Health and safety protocols were also strictly observed.
“The blood donated by our brethren will help sustain and save lives of its recipients,” said Brother Julius Caezar Santiago, district Christian Family Organizations (CFO) overseer, who supervised the activity. “At the same time, this blood donation also helps replenish the donors’ body, improve their blood circulation, and thus promote good health.”
On behalf of the district, Brother Santiago added that “through this blood donation we’re able to fulfill God’s teaching that Iglesia Ni Cristo members should always be ready to lend a helping hand for the good of others. We will always uphold these socio-civic activities. We hope that many more could benefit from this kind of help that Church activities like this offer.”
At present, the Ecclesiastical District of Taiwan supervises 21 congregations, one extension, and three Group Worship Service (GWS). — With reports from INC News Section
