This Month’s Newsletter

Become an Organ Donor, Be a Hero!

August is Organ Donor Awareness Month, which aims to highlight the need for organ donation. With thousands of patients in desperate need of healthy organ and tissue transplants, becoming a donor is a selfless act that costs you nothing, but has the potential to give someone a whole new chance at life.

Do You Qualify as an Organ Donor?

Anyone who is under the age of 70 and in good health can become an organ donor. Minors (those younger than 18 years) may become donors with parental permission.

Even if you have a medical condition that means some of your organs can’t be […]

Fast Facts for Potential Bone Marrow Donors

August is dedicated to raising Organ Donor Awareness, and it’s important to know that donation isn’t limited to the organs you can provide after your death. Becoming a bone marrow donor gives you the chance [...]

Caring Communities

Organ donation saves lives! August is Organ Donor Awareness Month, which makes it the perfect time to join the community of heroes who have selflessly registered as organ and tissue donors.

To register, visit the Organ Donor Foundation website: https://www.odf.org.za/, or call their toll-free line: 0800 22 66 11. It’s a small step that costs you nothing, and one day it could give a patient in need a new chance at life.

Consumer tip

Following an organic diet can be great for your health, but how do you make the transition if you’re on a budget? There are three easy ways to do this: buy direct, buy online, and buy in bulk.

Buy direct: You can buy organically grown fruits and veggies directly from farmers and farmer’s markets, for less than what you’d pay at a major grocery store.

Buy online: Buy direct from online suppliers, which will save you time and make it easy to keep track of your monthly spending. Many online stores also have great loyalty programmes, so you can earn discounts on future orders.

Buy in bulk: Buy your grains, legumes, spices and other items with a long shelf-life from bulk suppliers.
