Become a donor now and save up to 6 lives...

The main problem is lack of donors. In the UK in 2008 there were 9,747 waiting for transplants but the number of transplants was only 3,235 so sadly 506 died waiting.  In Ireland the situation is even worse with 209 transplants carried out in the same period of which only 4 lung were transplants. 

If an Irish Resident with a drivers licence the simplest way to become a donor is inform your family and your next of kin of your wishes and tick the box on your Drivers Licence.

If you become a multi-organ donor your heart and two lungs could save 3 lives, your two kidneys and liver could save another 3 lives. Register as a donor today!
