Three of these villages also received special recognition for achieving at least one percent blood donors in their respective total populations.

Dr. Aristides Concepcion-Tan, DOH-12 regional director, led the distribution of awards during ceremonies held at The Farm convention hall, Barangay Carpenter Hills, Koronadal City.

Given special recognition were the local government units of Barangay Rosary Heights 8, Barangay Rosary Heights 11 and Barangay Poblacion 1.

The awards are given to LGUs that implement effectively the blood services program of DOH-12.

It was based on the blood-letting activities of the Cotabato City Health Office with the participation of barangay officials and other stakeholders who donated blood.
