Meet the Orgamites

January 1, 2020 | Education | Patients | Self-management | Transplant nursing

The main objective of the Orgamites is to raise awareness and public acceptance of organ donation around the world, so that organ donation becomes the default position when anyone passes away for whatever reason. Their organs can then deliver life enhancing and life extending support to another person.

The lack of organs available for children is particularly critical, and the Orgamites are therefore a crucial tool in helping the educational process, in order to lead to greater acceptance of donation, and thus availability of organs for transplantation. At present, while many people understand the importance of this, it is nevertheless swept under the carpet; death and its consequences are not subjects that many people feel comfortable with.

The Orgamites will be used to break through this barrier by helping people, especially children, to confront and learn about the problem in an amusing and engaging way, hopefully on a daily basis. Over time, children growing up with this concept will pass the message on to the next generation, helping to make organ donation the social norm.

ESOT is proud to support this project and help raise awareness about organ donation.
