There are no artificial replacements for this life-sustaining substance we all need. The collection of safe blood remains an ongoing challenge and the ever increasing demand remains higher than the supply.

No one can exclude themselves from ever needing a blood transfusion, be it for emergency treatment, trauma, severe shock, burn wounds, and many medical conditions like leukaemia, anaemia, haemophilia, as clotting agent or bone marrow production, to name but a few.

The Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) is a non-profit, independent organisation operating in the Western Cape, supplying safe blood and blood products to all communities in the region from Cape Town to George. Our donors and recipients are our first and foremost priority. WPBTS ensures both donor and recipient safety, and excels in the science of transfusion, using the latest technology and research results.

Every year WPBTS collects more than 140 000 units (that's over 66 million litres) of safe blood, used to impact the lives of more than 420 000 people. Western Cape blood donors alone are responsible for this by their selfless act of giving thirty minutes of their time and 475 ml of their blood.

According to research, 75% of Western Cape inhabitants might need a blood transfusion during their life-time. Sadly less than 1.5% of the population in this region donate blood. We desperately need to increase this percentage in 2013 by recruiting 5 000 new active donors on top of regular new donors who enlist annually.

The WPBTS appeals to every citizen in this region to make a personal contribution, without any cost to yourself. Thousands of lives depend on your generosity to donate blood on a regular basis.
