Soon coming up! A day to be grateful! Make your wishes known!
Since 1998, the Council of Europe organises a European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation to promote organ donation and transplantation in its member states. It is hosted every year by a different member state with the aim of encouraging debate on this question. In 2010 the event will take place in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Kidneys, liver, heart, lungs ... while medicine is progressing by leaps, 56,000 people in Europe are on waiting lists for a transplant. Every day 12 of them die because of the lack of available organs.
