The biggest gift you ever can give to someone, is the gift of life. And you can do it!

This Christmas Season, consider donating only 480ml of your precious blood. A blood donation is a seemingly small act, but it has massive significance, it allows for people in need of it to live.

Remember it’s not just blood. It’s life! There is no factory that produces blood and yet people pay very little attention to the life-changing difference they can make by donating blood.

A blood drive will be held at Klinicare Despatch on December 22nd from 11:00 to 18:00. The public are urged please to support this drive.

“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world, remains and is immortal.” -Albert Pine
