Snethemba Ngongoma

Veins are branches,

Bodies are trees

Blood in bodies carries riches

To enrich life with oxygen.


As dark as wine, it flows

In abundance, like petals of a red rose

Red river, keep on flowing.

There is no life without blood.


When cars crash and smash,

Precious wine is spilled, shed.

To victims of bloodshed

Your blood is a special gift.

Now the cure in you could drift

A patient’s death back to life.

Blood is life.


The red river flows in us

Is remedy:

Anaemia is won over,

Leukaemia is lifeless.

Only if we donate blood.


With our persistence to donate

We let the existence of life continues.

Only if we donate blood.

Share your blood, be a lifesaver.
