Organ Donation Week, 2nd-8th September 2019

Organ Donation Week is an annual campaign held in September every year. The campaign aims to encourage people to join the organ donor register and to share their decision with their families.
Being able to donate organs to those who desperately need them is one of the great miracles of modern medicine. 
On average three people die every day in need of an organ transplant because there aren’t enough organ donors. Approximately 6,500 people across the UK are currently in need of an organ transplant. 

It only takes a few minutes to register as a donor on the NHS Organ Donor Register .
Over 480 people in Gibraltar are currently registered as donors. 

Remember donating your organs can save more than one life!
