On the 21st February this year NAMBITS paid a visit to Ella du Plessis High School. More than 52 learners donated blood on this day and this was said to be the highest numbers of donors recorded compared to the usual.

The event was described as a motivational platform because it did not just motivate the youth to save more lives, but it also gave hope to the needy and reduced the rate of death in Namibia. If one blood donation could save three lives, imagine how many lives could be saved by 52 that’s approximately 156.“ Donated blood goes to people who undergo surgery , mothers who have given birth and lost a lot of blood, patients with cancer and people who survived accidents. Donating blood avoids unnecessary deaths like those that die of shortage of blood in their bodies. ‘’says one of the NAMBTS employees. Our very own principal of Ella du Plessis Mr JJ Kavari donated blood , we are proud to see him lead by example as our head. “Despite the rumours of uncomfortability of laying in the the chair and although my schedule was overloaded , I dropped everything as soon as I saw the NAMBTS vehicle entering the school gate.” Said the principal. Mr Kavari announced on that day that day that it is a good theory that learners are donating blood , but it would be ravishing if teachers could lead by example and also volunteer .

Donors get free treats ,a bottle and cool drinks , this is to boost peoples desires of donating blood , “the free treats are not what drives me to donating my blood but the thought of how many lives I can save as a proud Namibian citizen.” Says Alex Winckler the first princess of the school.
