Organ Donation



Why Sign Up to Be an Organ Donor?

Organ transplants are life-saving operations. People on the transplant waiting list are suffering organ failure from conditions such as heart failure and kidney disease. Without the help of a generous gift of life from an organ donor they will die. One organ donor can save up to eight lives and one tissue donor can enhance the lives of up to 50 people.

What is Organ Donation?

An organ donor can donate a heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, pancreas and intestines. The kidneys and lungs can each save the lives of two people. One tissue donor can donate skin, veins, bone, connective tissue (such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage), corneas from the eyes, and heart valves.
