The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) has moved National Blood Donor Month to June. This is because critical shortages are usually experienced at this time, with it being cold and flu season. When you dontate blood, 480ml is taken – your body produces 5 litres. Remember to eat something substantial 4 hours before.
