Volunteers and third party organisations play an important role in assisting Kidney Donors Inc. to reach more people to create awareness of kidney organs donation worldwide
KD provides volunteer training to empower volunteers to assist with the following:
manning of awareness stands;
assistance at sporting and social events;
giving awareness talks at corporate wellness days;
giving awareness talks at schools, and
giving awareness talks at churches and similar type gatherings.
The training comprises an introduction to the work that KD does and covers important information about transplantation, including the history of KD and kidney transplants and the need for more transplants. It outlines why there is a shortage of donors and also which organs and tissue can be donated. Essentially it equips volunteers with the knowledge needed to raise awareness of organ and tissue donation and provides the guidelines on how to do so.
Please note: Volunteer assistance is limited to the above activities. While KD appreciates and is thankful for all assistance offered, it is not in a position to accept offers that extend beyond these activities. The executive management committee strategically selects months in advance those campaigns and activities that will best achieve its aims and objectives and allocate its scarce resources accordingly.
