City Councilor Elvira Casal, president of the Philippine Councilors League, said that at least 100 individuals participated their blood-letting activity.

The blood donors undergo physical assessment first, such as monitoring of blood pressure, vital signs, and physical examination.

“Since Tacloban is a big city, with a large population, more constituents are in need of blood donations,” she said.
