Afrihost Bleeds for South Africa
Thursday, 14 June, 2012 at 08:00 - Announcements
At Afrihost we’re dedicated to doing everything we can to make this country a better place to live in. Even if it means shedding a little blood - literally!
On 14 June 2012, blood transfusion services worldwide will celebrate World Blood Donor Day. This year’s theme “Every Blood Donor is a Hero” is also celebrated by the South African National Blood Service for National Blood Donor Month in June.
Our team recently participated in a Blood Drive, with the help of the dedicated peeps from SANBS. Although we had some veteran donors in our ranks, quite a few of the team were giving blood for the first time. After converting our team recreation room into a temporary Blood Donor Station, the SANBS folks set about extracting what they needed – our blood!!
Although most of us were a few pounds lighter, there was an amazing feeling amongst the team of having contributed to a very worthy cause. Thank you SANBS for helping us make a difference!
