Blood donation

blood

Why should I donate?

 

Donating a unit of this “precious gift of life” can save up to three lives of those patients in dire need of blood. By becoming a regular blood donor, this ensures that the safety of blood is maintained and makes it possible for the  South African National Blood Service (SANBS) to collect sufficient safe blood to meet the demand. More importantly, it’s a gratification in knowing that you help save lives.
