The Philippine Red Cross  is  appealing to  local government units in Negros Oriental that were not affected  by tropical storm “Sendong” to organize bloodletting activities.

Administrator Louella Bael of the Provincial PRC office  said the local chapter is  experiencing a severe crisis in blood supply. She said they had  zero blood supply since the middle of December 2011,  after “Sendong”  affected at least 10  areas  in the province.

At present they only have a few bags of type AB+ blood, she said.
