A Drop of Hope: FBM Foundation Embodies the Power of Giving with a Blood Donation Initiative in Pasig City

The act of donating blood is a selfless, life-saving gesture that significantly impacts the lives of those in need. On June 8th, the FBM Foundation held the "A Drop of Hope" solidarity action at One Corporate Centre Building, Pasig City. This initiative aimed to celebrate World Blood Donor Day observed globally on June 14th, and inspire individuals to contribute to this vital cause.

The timing of the FBM Foundation's Blood Drive is significant as it aligns with the World Blood Donor Day celebrations on June 14th. This global campaign completes 20 years of blood giving, acknowledging the contributions of voluntary blood donors. Given the rising need for blood donations in the region, the FBM Foundation promptly responded with this thoughtful activity.

World Blood Donor Day celebrates the contributions of voluntary blood donors and FBM Foundation’s latest action was a concretization of this purpose.

Active Participation of Blood Donor Volunteers

The event saw an enthusiastic response, with 50 volunteers signing up to donate blood, and 46 successfully qualifying. The volunteers’ participation in such a vital cause made a tangible impact, showcasing the power of unity and compassion in creating a healthier and more resilient society.
