World Blood Donor Day – June 14 2021

Donating one unit of blood can save the lives of 3 people.

World Blood Donor Day celebrates the millions of people worldwide who give their blood on a voluntary, unpaid basis.

The SANBS has many centres countrywide where blood can be donated. View Map Here.

All centres follow very strict Covid-19 protocols.

World Blood Donor Day – Your Blood Can Saves Lives.

Only 1% of South Africans are registered blood donors. As a unit of blood only lasts 42 days, regular blood donations are needed to maintain adequate stock. Donors can give blood as often as every eight weeks. You do not have to wait for World Blood Donor Day to make a difference.
