DONATING BLOOD REGULARLY TO SAVE LIVES
By establishing a blood donation clinic at our offices, we’re helping the South African National Blood Service and the WP Blood Transfusion Service save many more lives than we ever thought possible.
Two of South Africa’s largest blood donor services are under almost constant pressure for more blood. With a few DAN staff members having benefited from blood transfusions in the past, we felt it necessary to help these services in the most responsible way possible.
And so we opened up our offices both in Johannesburg and Cape Town to the respective blood donor services, acting as clinics every 6 weeks and open to neighbouring companies in each office park, our clients and even suppliers. Given that our setup is dependent on attendance, it’s incredible to see that we’ve hosted these clinics for much longer than both SANBS and WPBTS ever expected. Seeing that one donation from a single DAN employee can save three lives, we definitely don’t see the initiative ending any time soon.
