In an effort to save lives this festive season, Gauteng Department of Health MEC Hope Papo will tomorrow, Wednesday, 12 December 2012 donate blood at Cresta Shopping Centre in Randburg.

This is done in support of South African National Blood Service (SANBS) in their attempts to collect blood.
MEC Papo also urges communities to give a gift of blood and save a life this festive season.
