Donating life: time to talk

Join the campaign: staff from Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service combine to raise awareness of organ donation. Wellington Aboriginal Corporation Health Service (WACHS) is urging Aboriginal people, communities and families to have discussions about organ and tissue donation to help end the wait for those in need of a life-saving transplant.

The call came during the recent nationalDonateLife Week and continues inthe coming weeks.

“Conversations concerning organ and tissue donation of loved ones is not something that is a high priority, and even when it occurs it can be a very difficult conversation,” WACHS chief Darren Ah See said.

“However, at WACHS we want to encourage Aboriginal people especially families to consider becoming organ and tissue donors, to save lives of others who require donated organs or tissues.”

DonateLife Week ran for the seven days up to Sunday.

“To encourage more indigenous people in the region to join the Australian Organ Donor Register online to help save lives, WACHS will be holding a number of events for staff and the community,”Mr Ah See said.

It will host a community information stand for patients in the clinic on Wednesday to raise awareness about what organ donation means and about starting conversations with their families about donation.

WACHS will provide some healthy choices of fruit and water along with information about “Have the chat”and “Organ and Tissue Donation”.

The Tackling Indigenous Smoking team is partnering with DonateLife and the Organ and Tissue Authority to support the Dubbo Waratahs Rugby League Knockout on September 24, in particular the James Ackerman Legacy, and participating in the 2016 City to Surf in Sydney on August 14 to raise awareness.

“Registering on the Australian Organ Donor Register is important though we encourage families to have these discussions first so that they are aware of their loved ones wishes in relation to donating their organs or tissues,” Mr Ah See said.

“With around 1500 Australians on transplant waiting lists today, we need to optimise every donation opportunity to save more lives. We can all do this by joining the register online and sharing our decision with family and friends.”
