MCGI’s Mass Blood Drive Advocacy Honored in First Dugong Quezon Awards
Lucena City, Quezon Province (August 16, 2016) — The Members Church of God International (MCGI) received the Hall of Fame award in the first ever Dugong Quezon Awards held at the Quezon Convention Center in the city of Lucena, Quezon.
Bro. Danny Navales, Assistant Helper of the Ministry, received the award on behalf of the Church, and expressed gratitude to God for continuously giving the group a chance to help our fellowmen in need of blood.
“We are happy to know that as our bodies benefit from the act of donating blood, many of our fellowmen in need benefit as well. This is not a one-time event, but a continuous program spearheaded by Bro. Daniel and Bro. Eli,” said Bro. Navales.
Aside from the Hall of Fame award given to the religious organization, 23 of its members received the Galloner Award from the Quezon Provincial Government on the same evening.
“It is a really great feeling to receive this award, and to take part in a great advocacy initiated by Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel — to be able to donate blood to help those in need,” remarked Galloner Awardee, Bro. Richard Ricamara.
Quezon Province Provincial Administrator Rommel Edaño expressed his gratitude to the group for their continuous blood donation efforts.
