CAPE TOWN - The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) is calling for donations, saying it’s currently running on just two days stock.

The organisation says a further drop in supply is likely to impact its ability to save lives.

On average, the service needs to collect about 3,000 units of blood each day to meet demand.

The organisation’s Silungile Mlambo says: “We urge people every day to go back to give blood if they haven’t done so in the last two months.”
