Donate Blood and save a life

Seventy-five (75) staff members and clients of Bank Windhoek showed their support for the Namibia Blood Transfusion Services (NAMBTS) by donating blood last week at the Bank Windhoek Main Branch, in Independence Avenue, and the Vehicle and Asset Finance Branch in Ausspannplatz, on Thursday and Friday respectively.

The 75 donors can potentially save 225 lives as one unit of blood can save three lives.

This is the second of five Bank Windhoek Blood Donation Clinics held every year, aimed at encouraging staff members and clients to donate blood.

Marjolize Scholtz, Corporate Wellness Consultant at Bank Windhoek said the Bank has a responsibility to remind staff members and clients of their duty to donate blood, as they never know whose lives they might save. “They could be saving the life of a family member, friend, work colleague or neighbour.”

Members of the public can also donate blood at one of the two NAMBTS centres in Windhoek and another in Swakopmund. NAMBTS also runs mobile clinics throughout the country.
