Donating blood not only saves one life but three lives and this is the reason why I donate blood annually, says Bharti Gopal.

The 59-year-old was among the blood donors at the Shop N Save Supermarket, Nakasi, which the Sai organisation ran last Saturday.

“I’m one of the members of the Sai Organisation and I strongly believe that when we donate blood we are making a lifesaving contribution that benefits a lot of people,” Ms Gopal said.

She said every year she donated blood and also encouraged anyone who was healthy to donate blood in order to save people’s lives.

“Becoming a blood donor is very easy and if you are ever unfortunate enough to need a blood transfusion, you’re going to rely on the kindness of strangers to get you through.”

Ms Gopal said it was a bit of give and take.

“You give blood and take away a glass of juice, biscuits, sandwiches and a nice and warm feeling from having done a good turn.”
