Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) members from the Ecclesiastical District of Italy South has time and again proved their solidarity among themselves and with the Church Administration not only in religious works but also in socio-civic activities.

On November 9, 2022, they conducted a blood donation drive at the chapel compound of the Local Congregation of Rome.

Their collective humanitarian gesture was done in cooperation with La Rete di Tutti OdV” [The Network of All Supervisory Boards] Association, an Italian organization whose goal is “raising awareness and promoting blood donation.”

With Buklod organization officers in the district assisting the medical volunteers, the potential donors underwent pre-screening procedures to ensure that they were qualified to donate blood.

“Despite their tight schedule, the brethren strove to come and extend a helping hand to others,” said Brother M-rren Sta. Barbara, a ministerial worker. “Thanks be to God for having an activity where we can show our unity and submission to the Church Administration.”

Felice Di Iorio, founder and president of La Rete di Tutti OdV”, expressed his thanks to the Church Of Christ. “Many brethren went to the venue to donate blood and express their love towards others. Thank you again for the great availability and wonderful participation. We look forward to do more together by giving hope to many people that are living in difficult times,” he said. — With reports from INC News Section
