June 2018

World Blood Donor Month

June is dedicated to blood donors. Without them and their dedication to blood donation, lives would be lost.

World Blood Donor Day is commemorated on 14 June 2018 in a global celebration of the millions of people throughout the world who give their blood on a voluntary basis to save the lives of those in need.

Donating a unit of blood can save up to three 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.

Find out more about donating blood on the the SANBS website.
