Suncoasters Doing Their Bit To Save Lives
In a time when South Africa, and the world, are fighting a devastating pandemic, the helping spirit of the Suncoast team shines through once again. SANBS has done two blood drives at Suncoast during the last 4 months with another drive planned for March. Staff donated 42 pints of blood in total which will result in 126 lives being saved.
SANBS aims to collect 3 200 units of blood a day to ensure a safe and sufficient supply, to meet the demand, but recent stats show that less than 1% of South Africans are active blood donors.
The Suncoast team will continue to do all they can to support the SANBS blood drives and have set a challenge to make 2021 the year that we break our records in terms of number of pints collected by the end of the year.
