KZN SOS: blood donors needed

2010-04-09 00:00

THE SA National Blood Services is appealing to KwaZulu-Natal residents to donate blood because there is less than one day’s supply in stock. KZN has been getting blood from Gauteng and the Free State for 10 days to cover the 500 units needed daily.

People aged 16 to 65 can donate blood provided they weigh more than 50 kg and lead a safe lifestyle. Donor centres are open at the Hayfields shopping centre Monday to Saturday and in Loop Street on weekdays from 8 am to 4 pm (6 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays) and from 8.30 am to 1 pm on Saturdays. Call 033 264 3600 or 033 264 3601.
