Organ transplantation transforms the lives of patients who for years have suffered to such a degree that no healthy person can imagine. A thousand people in Bulgaria live in anticipation. Dozens of them are children.
Their lives are supported by painful procedures. Instead of kidneys, their blood is being purified by hemodialyzers. Instead of a heart, they have a pump under the armpit. Instead of intestine, they are on systems. Their body is supported by machines and their spirit – by the hope that they will be restored to life.
Next year, two hundred of them will surrender. Three hundred Bulgarians will have the misfortune to replace them in the waiting list. Less than 20 people will be saved this year if we do not act so as to change something.
Did you know that in Bulgaria it is about 2000% more likely for us to need a transplantation one day, than it is to become able doctors? And there is not a single case of a patient who has refused to accept donations, but ... in 90% of cases people refuse to donate.
Childhood Development Association "Article 24" is calling you to participate in the campaign in support of organ donation.
