Multotec Blood Drive

One of the busiest days on the Multotec calendar is the South African National Blood Service (SANBS) Drive. This was no different on this year’s blood drive, which took place at Multotec Spartan on 16 October. 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Multotec, together with SANBS, had to make sure that all COVID regulations were put in place in preparation of the area where the donations would take place. Blood donation figures stand at 1% of the whole population due to a lack of active blood donors in South Africa, so it was necessary to involve the whole company in this life-saving initiative.

Multotec holds the distinction of being the BEST performing organisation, as declared by the South African National Blood Service (SANBS), when it comes to the number of blood donations, so it’s our duty to maintain this sought-after position.

Luckily, Multotec employees heeded the call, and we ended up exceeding expectations while also attracting new donors. 

The results speak for themselves. Our target from South African National Blood Services (SANBS) was 25 donors but as a result of our past performance, our target this year was 50 donors. 47 donors managed to donate successfully, 8 were deferrals and 6 were new donors. As can be seen on our Facebook page (Interface Multotec Group), our donors had a great time, while executing the noble duty of being life-savers by donating blood. 

It was mentioned by SANBS that eligible donors should please keep on donating especially the O+ and O- and B+ and B- blood groups where stocks are low. It is crucial to keep employees informed on the importance of donating blood, and I am happy to say our blood drive was a tremendous success. We’ve set the bar very high for next year’s blood drive! 

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the Multotec blood drive! See you next year as we continue to save lives!
