The candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2023 participated in a bloodletting activity organized by the Philippine Red Cross - Quezon City Chapter at the Farmers Plaza Bazaar in Araneta City on February 18.
All candidates took part in the said activity, which aims to help replenish the supply in the country’s blood bank. According to Janice Melody Alfonso, RN, PRC Quezon City Chapter Administrator, the cancellation of blood donations due to the pandemic has caused blood supply to reach “insufficient and critical level”.
Binibinis who passed the blood screening were allowed to donate blood, while the rest were oriented by Red Cross personnel on the importance of donating blood.
For 2023, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. partners with more charitable organizations and institutions to engage candidates in different advocacy work.
