THE Organ Donor Foundation (ODF) is a non-profit organisation which aims to address the critical shortage of organ and tissue donors in SA through awareness and educational campaigns aimed at the public and medical professionals.

There are over 4 300 South Africans awaiting organ and cornea transplants yet less than 600 transplants are performed each year and many adults and children die waiting.

One person can save seven lives by becoming an organ donor and can improve the quality of life of up to 50 more people by donating their tissue.

The ODF thanks Watercrest Mall for giving the public the opportunity to register at the Angel Tree. Watercrest Mall will also donate R50 on your behalf to the ODF, for the first 200 new members to sign up at the Angel Tree.

Visit the website www.odf.org.za or call the toll free line on 0800 22 66 11 to register or for more information.

It is simple, costs nothing and only takes a few minutes.- Supplied.
