YOU can help someone complete their story by making your donation of liquid love on Saturday, 4 June at the KwaDukuza Town Hall Supper Room from 9am to 3pm.
The South African National Blood Service (SANBS), who will be host the blood drive in KwaDukuza, is governed by an Act of Parliament, the Human Tissue Act.
In accordance with the Act and International Standards of Practice, blood donation must be a voluntary, non-remunerated, altruistic act.

The process of giving blood involves screening the donor, the actual donation, and a brief recovery period.
Often donors are encouraged to sit down for few minutes after a donation to return to normality, as light-headedness and faintness may occur.
Donors can rest assured that donor staff are trained to handle and stabilise donors if complications occur.
Donors are discouraged from heavy exercise or lifting on the day of the donation and, encouraged to drink lots of fluids after donating to replenish blood volume.

If you donate blood today, you can give someone the chance to continue writing their life story.
Every blood donation can save a life and give someone a tomorrow.
Thanks to regular blood donors, many terminally ill patients get second chances to reach their potential.

Donor requirements include:

• You need to weigh 50kgs or more

• Be between the ages of 16 to 65

• Lead a sexually safe lifestyle

• Be in good health on the day of the donation

• Have a meal prior to donating

SANBS is encouraging KwaDukuza residents to come along with a buddy and help save lives.
An exciting day has been planned with a lucky draw and a token of appreciation to every donor.
