On November 20, 2022, brethren from the Ecclesiastical District of Taiwan, repeat and first-time donors alike, showed up for a blood donation drive for the benefit of the Hsinchu Blood Services Foundation.
The charitable event conducted under the auspices of the Christian Family Organizations (CFO) took place at the foundation’s blood collecting center at Lane 215, Guangming 11th Rd, Zhubei City, Hsinchu County.
The staff of Hsinchu Blood Services facilitated the pre-screening procedures to ensure that both repeat and first-time volunteer-brethren were qualified to donate. Buklod officers and members in the district assisted in making the process, from screening to the actual blood extraction, smooth and orderly.
“As a first-time donor, I’m delighted that I was able to qualify and participate in the blood donation activity held inside the Church Of Christ. It was a fulfilling experience for I know I was of help to others who are in need,” said Berna Turla from the Local Congregation of Zhubei.
The enthusiasm of the brethren, as expressed in their voluntary participation, “proved that they are serious in their desire to uphold a life in holiness as helping those in need is a command of God,” the district CFO overseer, Brother Julius Caezar Santiago, said.
The brethren were led in humanitarian event by the district supervising minister, Brother Mayonel Taal. — With reports from INC News Section
