Former President Fidel V. Ramos

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) has joined the outpouring of condolences for the family of late former President Fidel Ramos, who they remember as a humanitarian and also a regular blood donor.

“He may be gone but his humanitarian spirit will forever live on not only as a memory but as an aspiration for future generations,” the PRC said in a statement.

The PRC noted that Ramos was a regular blood donor since 1954.

“Being a serviceman, he appreciated the value of blood during emergencies and had been a regular door since 1954,” the organization also said. “If it were up to him, Pres. Ramos would have kept on donating blood, and Chairman [Richard] Gordon would fondly joke that his blood should be in a museum.”
