THE South African National Blood Service (SANBS) is implementing a mass blood drive next Wednesday, 21 March (Human Rights Day), to recruit new donors and ensure there is sufficient stock of safe blood available in South Africa.

The #NewBlood campaign is targeting the collection of 4 500 units of blood on the public holiday.

“Currently less than one per cent of South Africans donate blood even though it demands little more than giving up 30 minutes of their time at least twice a year.” said Silungile Mlambo, chief marketing officer for the SANBS. “Holidays are unfortunately the time when we traditionally run short of blood because we are not able to host our regular drives at schools and university campuses. But this year, the

SANBS wants to start turning things around. We want to lend a hand and ensure that there is enough safe blood available in the country,” she said.

In north Durban, two blood drives will be held, one at the Durban North Blood Donor Clinic and another at Grace Church uMhlanga.

Our Lady of Fatima Dominican Convent School will also be supporting the event on the day with the school’s interact club helping out.

Head of the school’s the Interact Club, Larissa Naidoo had this to say:
