 GQWEST JOINS BLOOD DRIVE

GQWEST the company behind the Aquabest and Aquaquest water franchises has continued to partner with the Great Lighthouse Foundation and National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) for their recent Voluntary Blood Program.

The bloodletting program will help boost the supply of blood in the country’s blood banks. At present health workers need to collect 2,232 units of donated blood every day to ensure the adequacy of blood supply to meet the Philippine annual blood requirement currently pegged at 700,000 to 750,000 units.

The company was able to provide the NKTI with 10 blood donors who each gave around a pint of blood each. The volunteers stated that they are happy to have done their part to help save the lives of people who urgently need blood transfusions in order to survive.
