CAPE TOWN – Cape Town's EMS Blood Run is currently underway in a bid to promote blood donation.

This joint venture between the Western Cape Health Department, the Western Province Blood Transfusion and Club Fever is taking place in the Landsdowne community.

Provincial spokesperson for Medical and Forensic Pathology Services Robert Daniels said, “This blood run will assist in supplementing the needed provincial blood stocks required over the festive season. A single blood donation can assist up to four lives.”

Daniels also requests residents to make regular blood donations.
