The Western Cape Blood Service hopes to collect 1000 Units in 1 day with the help of 10 shopping malls from around the province.


Western Cape, South Africa (25 October 2021) – The Western Cape Blood Service (WCBS) is gearing up for the festive season with the hopes of having enough blood stocks to last 5 days. They are running critically low at present, and to get stocks up; they are hosting a fun challenge.

The Western Cape Blood Service will host its first 1 day – 10 malls – 1000 units of blood campaign on Saturday, 30 October 2021. This is the first campaign of this magnitude for the provincial branch.

“We always aim to have a 5-day bloodstock and our supply has been under severe pressure over the past few months. Therefore, we are appealing to all eligible donors to donate blood and help the Western Cape get back to a 5-day blood supply.”

They are encouraging donors to visit the malls where they will be taking donations. They hope to have 100 donors from each mall to achieve their goal of 1000 units.
