2016 and 2017 SANBS certificates of appreciation and merit
The Vaal University of Technology’s Campus Clinic has received awards for being the university clinic with the most blood donors.
In 2016 and 2017, VUT received certificates of appreciation and merit respectively.
These achievements have been made possible by the use of different communication mediums, such broadcast on VUTFM, e-communication (staff email), social media and posters to create awareness for the different campaigns that they have.
Blood donors always save lives at risk – lives of babies born prematurely, lives of accident victims, lives of women giving birth and the lives of people fighting cancer.
Ms Patricia Mrwetyana, the Health Promoter at the Campus Clinic, encouraged staff and students to take the first step towards saving another life.
“Being involved in blood donation makes a person feel good, first by saving someone’s life and secondly, by living a healthy lifestyle,” she said.
