Recognition Program

 

Our Way of Saying Thanks
In the words of Khalil Gibran: “You give little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give”.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) policy states that blood must be donated by voluntary, non-remunerated donors such as you with no expectation of reward.

Donating blood for altruistic reasons, knowing that you will save a life, should therefore be the greatest reward of all.

SANBS does have a reward programme to encourage its blood donors to donate regularly.

Upon reaching various milestone donations, donors receive pins, medals or gifts and are invited to an awards event.

Each time you donate blood, you give life.
