Donate Life reaching out to the Muslim community

Are you, or is anyone you know, a organ donor?

Sure, you might have it on your drivers licence because you ticked the little box when filling out the forms. But have you discussed your decision with your loved ones – the ones that when the time comes, will be required to give the all clear?

It can be a sensitive issue, but it’s one that shouldn’t be ignored. There are a lot of myths surrounding organ donation, one in particular is that your religion doesn’t allow it.

Donate life recently launched the video Reaching Out – aimed at the Australians of Muslim faith in their decision-making and family discussions about organ and tissue donation.

Angus Randall spoke to CEO of the Australian Organ and Tissue Authority, Yael Cass, to find out more.
