The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte, through the Ilocos Norte Youth Development Office (INYDO) and in partnership with Philippine Red Cross (PRC) call for blood donors as they conduct the 'Sirib Youth Blood Bank' donation drive starting on November 29, from 9:00 A.M to 2:00 P.M., at the Philippine Red Cross Office, Laoag City, Ilocos Norte.

The 'Sirib Youth Blood Bank,' a quarterly activity of the INYDO and the PRC started in 2017, to celebrate INYDO's fourth anniversary.

"Aside from the fact that this activity promotes volunteerism among Ilokano community, particularly the donors, it is also one way of showing unity or panagkaykaysa. Simpleng aktibidad lang siya kung tutuusin, but it could help and save hundreds of lives; sa mga Ilokano families who will be needing blood supply," Mr. Willie Jake Sib-at, Local Youth Development Officer remarked.

Since 2017, the INYDO recorded almost 200 donors from various institutions, organization, and groups throughout the province.
