European Organ Donation Day

European day for organ donation and transplantation was held on September 9th, 2017.  It was organised by the European Directorate for the quality of medicines and health care, Council of Europe.

In a planned campaign the organisers of European Organ Donation Day, through promoting the importance of organ donation, will bring hope to the many thousands of people waiting for an organ.  



On European Organ Donor Awareness Day, members of the Irish Heart & Lung Transplant Association visited the Circle of Life Garden in Galway, where they remembered together their donors and spoke of the wonderful gift of new life they have received through organ donation.

Denis & Martina Goggin spoke of the importance of organ donation not just to recipients but also to donor families, and said that the presence of heart and lung recipients here in the garden on European awareness day  was a testament to the fundamental gift that is organ donation. It was an emotional day for many.
