Support Team Tell in the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg.
Take the decision to #makeitknown that you are an organ donor.
I have been in renal failure since 2011 and have been waiting for a kidney since 2012. Both my husband and I are organ donors and our families are aware of our wishes.
There are numerous misconceptions about organ donation and tissue donation. Tell's goal is to educate the public about organ donation as well as medical professionals and break the stigma and misinformation around organ and tissue donation.
It is also important to note that in South Africa, the donor’s family has the final say in whether or not organs are permitted to be donated.
Tell's mission is to end the waiting list by changing and leading the conversation around organ and tissue donation in South Africa.
We need your assistance to be able to cover our operational cost such as:
- printing of pamhplets
- telephone cost
- educational material
- website hosting cost
- transport cost for volunteers to eduactional drives.
Transplant Education for Living Legacies
TELL (Transplant Education for Living Legacies) was established in November 2018 to increase awareness and support of organ and tissue donation within the South African community. TELL's goal is to help educate both potential donors as well as medical healthcare professionals, and break the stigma and misinformation around organ and tissue donation. TELL's mission is to end the waiting list by changing and leading the conversation around organ and tissue donation in South Africa.
Because the most important part of organ and tissue donation, is conversation.
