Who can people affected by organ transplantation contact?
Here you will find a list of associations and organizations for people affected by organ transplantation and their families – for patients on the donor waiting list, for families facing the tragic loss of a loved one or friend or organ recipients who would like to get involved in the donation cause.
Although the Swiss Transplantation Act forbids a donor’s family and the recipient from knowing each other’s identities, www.habdank.ch provides a platform for those affected – families of donors and recipients – to express their gratitude and feelings, and to tell their stories anonymously. Organ recipients who wish to thank a donor’s family, but do not wish to do so online, can also send a letter to the donor’s next of kin via Swisstransplant (see download on the right). This option is also available to donors’ families who would like to know how the organ recipients are.
Can we count on you to be available for interviews or lectures in the future? Become Swisstransplant ambassador!
