Pi Sigma commemorates Bonifacio Day with blood drive

03:08 PM November 29, 2021

The Pi Sigma Fraternity Alumni Association Inc. (PSFAAI) is joining the Filipino people in commemorating the 158th birth anniversary of our national hero, Gat. Andres Bonifacio, on Nov. 30, 2021, by holding a blood-letting program dubbed “Katipunan at Kapatiran: Sanduguan Para sa Bayan.”

The daylong activity pays homage to sanduguan (blood compact), the solemn rite of the brave and valiant members of the Kataastaasan, Kagalanggalangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan, who joined the revolutionary movement that Bonifacio founded in 1892 by signing their names with their own blood.

To honor Bonifacio’s heroism, the PSFAAI and its members will be laying a wreath in front of the statue of the “Father of Philippine Revolution” in Vinzon’s Hall of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, on Tuesday at 9 a.m.

This will be followed with the simultaneous blood donation drive organized by the fraternity’s chapters in major cities nationwide in coordination with the Philippine Red Cross.
