Need Some Inspiration?
Read more about the need for blood donation and let it inspire your creative angle.
** A blood transfusion takes place every 35 seconds in South Africa.
** We need over 700 units each day in the Western Cape alone.
** Research statistics show that although 75% of the population in the Western Cape might require blood and blood products in their lifetime, a mere 1.5% are blood donors.
** Each blood donation can save up to 3 lives!
** It only takes 30 minutes to donate blood.
** Each donation is only 475ml, less than a fizzy drink. The average person has between four and five liters of blood in their body.
** It is our youth, as leaders of tomorrow, who hold the future of a sustainable, safe blood supply in their hands.
** We make sure that we always have at least a few days’ blood stocks available to prevent any dangerous shortages and to avoid death. We would therefore appeal to the public when we reach blood stocks of 2 days or less.
Donor Criteria :
1. You need to be between the ages of 16 – 65.
2. You need to be healthy on the day of donation.
3. You need to live a safe sexual lifestyle.
4. You need to weigh 50kg or more.
** It’s also important to remember to eat and drink at least 3-4 hours before donating blood. Drink lots of fluids after donation.
