Donate blood bring a buddy too

2018-09-13 06:01

The Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) introduces the Bring-a-Buddy Campaign during the month of September.

Existing donors are asked to bring along a buddy when they come and donate this September and help in saving millions of lives.

Giving up 20 to 30 minutes of your day every 56 days can make you a hero for a lifetime.

For more information, potential donors can SMS “Blood” to 33507 and WPBTS will call you back with information on where to donate.

Donors can also call 021 507 6300, email or visit

Like the group on Facebook (WP Blood), follow them on Twitter (@WPBlood) and/or Instagram (WP_Blood) or download the WP Blood app (free download on iOS and Android app stores) for blood stock.
