The SANBS urgently appealed to all potential and existing blood donors that are due to donate, to visit a SANBS blood donation site, to donate their precious unit of blood.
The blood drive was then set up within the vicinity of Vision Tactical’s offices, where residents and citizens were able to donate blood comfortably and safely, with all COVID-19 protocols in place.
Overwhelmed at the goodwill of people. How people came out to donate blood despite the concern and worry of #COVID19 around us, people adhered to strict COVID protocol & made the EFFORT to be donors today.
Heroes Donate Blood.

“On behalf of my entire team, I would like to thank all our donors that booked for the Vision Tactical Blood Drive with the SANBS & ER24EMS – your blood saves lives.”
Theba has encourage South Africans to continue donating blood whenever they possibly can.

“I applaud one and all who came out to donate blood today, future blood donations will definitely take place with Vision Tactical and donors and potential donors will be able to follow us via all of our social media platforms to stay in the loop of where we will be next.”
The SANBS needs 3 200 units of blood every day and should be sitting on a five to seven day supply of blood daily, however, this is often not the case over the festive season.
