The De Keur Group decided to support the “Blood Drive” at the Ceres Hospital as part of our activities for Mandela Day.
So in memory of the magnificent Mandela – we hope our blood donation today will make a difference in someone’s life:
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela
Research statistics show that although 75% of the population in the Western Cape might require blood transfusions in their lifetime, a mere 1.5% are blood donors. Doesn’t add up, does it? If you’re otherwise healthy, it’s very likely that you can donate blood and help balance out these numbers. With a single donation you could save three lives – and it won’t cost you a cent.
