Musings

11th February 2014: Just finished a Skype call with a friend in South Africa. A girl she grew up with suffers from cystic fibrosis and she’s on a waiting list for a lung transplant.

Turns out that there are around 80,000 people on the South African Organ donor register. Out of a population of  around 50 million people. That is simply a disgrace.

I’m on the UK organ and bone marrow donor registers and I donate blood. Unless you have a serious health reason, you have no excuse NOT to make your body available to help others.

If you are reading this, PLEASE consider becoming an organ donor in your own/ host country. I can’t think of a more honorable way to live on after death than helping someone else live a fulfilling life.

If you live in South Africa, please sign up here.

If you live in the UK, please sign up here and here.
