WATCH five Amazing Blood Recipient Stories
SEE how blood donations helped to save these people’s lives.
Thousands of patients would die daily if there is insufficient quality blood in stock. When one donates blood, they give patients the gift money cannot buy or science cannot create.
A unit of blood can save up to three lives as blood is separated into red blood cells, plasma and platelets.
Donating safe blood means you are committed to participating in a vital community service to improve the quality of life, for patients in need of blood transfusions.
The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) has various measures in place to protect the health and wellbeing of blood donors and patients.
So who has benefited from you donating blood? Below are five amazing stories we hope will help inspire you to donate more.
