saved after 34 people donated blood yesterday at the “We are so Vein” blood
donor awareness campaign in Clearwater Mall.
This campaign was an initiative of
ER24 in collaboration with Accident Angels, Clearwater Mall and the South
African National Blood Service.
ER24 spokeswoman Chitra Bodasing said
the main focus of the Blood Angels were to walk through Clearwater Mall and
educate members of the public on how an injury or medical condition can result
in severe or sudden blood loss in different parts of the body. While doing so,
they encourage people to become blood donors.
“The Blood Angels stopped people in
their tracks and some grabbing at their cell phones to take pictures as this
unique way of introducing blood donor awareness was introduced across the mall.”Bodasing
Bodasing added that they are pleased with the
public’s reception of this campaign and interaction with the South African
National Blood Service personnel.
