Two rookie policemen in Negros Oriental did not hesitate to donate their blood to save the life of a woman who figured in an accident in Dauin town last week.

Gen. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP), commended on Thursday, June 17, Patrolman Reynald Tayko and Patrolman Jessie Ray Bulfa, assigned to the 705th Maneuver Company of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 7.


“I am so proud of these kinds of policemen who would not hesitate to help save the life of other people. As the father of the PNP, I salute you for what you’ve done,” said Eleazar.


The family of one Lilibeth Salipod Sobreviga sought assistance from the PNP as the woman needed an emergency blood transfusion after she figured in an accident last June 9 in Barangay Bulak.

The RMFB 7, led by Police Colonel Robert Dangli Lingbawan, and the 705th Maneuver Company, under Police Lieutenant Jade Asiong Basingao, immediately responded to the call for help, in coordination with the Philippine Red Cross.

Tayko and Bulfa volunteered to donate their blood to Sobreviga and immediately went to the Siliman University Medical Center where the patient is confined. The police officers also gave fruits to the patient for her recovery and saw to her other needs while in the hospital.

Eleazar expressed hope that the actions of Tayko and Bulfa would serve as an inspiration and example to other PNP personnel to do acts of kindness and good deeds for their fellow Filipinos, whenever and wherever possible.
