PMAH’s First Ever Blood Donation Drive on January 9

The blood supply throughout the country is experiencing a critical shortage of blood due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In fact, community blood centers project a loss of 250,000 blood donations over the rest of the calendar year due to a 30% reduction in scheduled blood drives compared to the same time period last year,” the Philippine Medical Association of Hawaii (PMAH) said on their Facebook post.

On Jan. 9, 2021 from 11:30am to 5:30pm, PMAH is hosting their first-ever “BLOOD DONATION & BONE MARROW REGISTRY DRIVE” in partnership with FilCom Center, Blood Bank of Hawaii and Be The Match Hawaii.

To comply with the COVID-19 safety guidelines, the donation drive is strictly by appointment only. There are two slots available per time slot so PMAH highly encourages to invite a friend to donate as well.
