Through the administration of Eastern Laguna Medical Hospital, led by Hospital Administrator Nerrida Baja and the ELMH Medical Director, department and section heads of the Hospital attended the activity and were equipped with necessary information on cornea and eye donation.
The activity is part of the on-going partnership between the Eye Bank Foundation and Eastern Laguna Medical Hospital as evinced in the newly-signed Memorandum of Agreement.
The activity likewise follows the policy thrust of Eye Bank’s president and CEO in strengthening Hospital Retrieval Program and volunteer donation.
This aims to increase awareness, acceptance, and more importantly volunteer donation of transplantable cornea and eye tissue in the province of Laguna.
Just recently, the Eye Bank had a courtesy call with Laguna Provincial Health Office together with the chiefs of hospitals and district heads.
In celebration of the Sight Saving Month, the Eye Bank is committed to launch intensive and extensive awareness campaigns on cornea and eye donation throughout the country.
