Transplant Athletes

Living examples of the need for organ donation. Disciples for organ transplants. That is how Willie Uys, chairman of the South African Transplant Sports Association (SATSA) describes the athletes competing in the South African Transplant Games.

This month is organ donor month and the South African Transplant games was held in Durban over the weekend. 

In South Africa there are 4300 people on the transplant waiting list, but because of the scarceness of donors only 600 transplants was done last year.
