Senator Richard Gordon spearheaded the groundbreaking ceremony and laying of time capsule earlier today (September 2, 2016). See FB photo album here.
“The establishment of a branch in Bogo City will further bring Philippine Red Cross services nearer and more accessible to people in the northern part of Cebu. People from Bogo and neighboring municipalities will not have to go far to access Red Cross services like blood as the new building will have a blood collecting station,” said Senator Gordon.
The move to establish a PRC branch in Bogo City was strongly supported by the local community which sees the need for the Red Cross to continue its presence in the communities it assisted in the aftermath of typhoon Yolanda.
