Severe blood shortage

The SANBS is reaching crisis levels and urgently needs your help.

The South African National Blood Services (SANBS) is experiencing a severe blood shortage and needs your help.

“We are sitting on 1,7 days stock, which is reaching a critical stage,” Lebo Seatlholo, SANBS Public Relations Practitioner said in an urgent press statement.

“The SANBS needs you to urgently donate blood. We are near a crisis level and without your immediate help we will not be able to donate a lifetime to those patients who are in dire need of blood transfusions.”
