Love Life; Gift Life (LLGL) was established in April 2016 and is a registered Non Profit Organisation (172-635 NPO) and Public Benefit Organisation (930054399). LLGL’s main objective is to increase awareness of organ donation in South Africa, through various approved print, broadcast and internet media campaigns and events. The organisation’s aim is to facilitate individuals in communicating their choice to be an organ donor to their families.
LLGL’s current focus is to share the stories of transplant recipients, those who are on the transplant waiting list, and families who have donated loved ones’ organs. The LLGL team wants to show how positive organ donation is and how it affects real people, both those who have received organ transplants and those still desperately waiting to receive their gift of life. By attaching faces to the stories, a personal element is added which resonates with donor families as it helps to illustrate just how important and life-changing saying “yes” to organ donation can be.
In addition to media campaigns aimed at raising organ donation awareness, LLGL also aims to improve education of the organ donation process to the general public, medical professionals and first responders. The LLGL team is therefore available for any talks or other opportunities to promote organ donation, so please contact us should any such opportunities arise (note that at present, talks are limited to the Johannesburg/Pretoria area).
