Global Organ Donor Commemorative Event, November 30 2017

The first ever global event honouring organ donors will take place in cities across the world later this month.
This Irish-led Global Organ Donor Commemorative Event - Thursday November 30, 2017.
The first ever global event honouring organ donors will take place in cities across the world later this month. This Irish-led commemorative initiative will involve stone sculpted candles, gifted by Irish cities, Galway, Derry, and Belfast being unveiled in Cape Town, Melbourne and Boston on 30th November.  A similar event was held on the 16th November in Spain when a Dublin-gifted commemorative plaque was unveiled in Barcelona.
The purpose of the project is to give expression on a world stage to society's appreciation and gratitude for the life-giving gift made possible through organ donors and their families.  It will also help promote the cause of organ donation and transplantation globally.
The project is being initiated by Strange Boat Donor Foundation in association with Organ Donation and Transplant Ireland.
