"Organ Donation Awareness Campaign"
The Business Administration Department (Female Branch) presented a project based assignment for the course Project Management entitled "PROJECTS IN ACTION". It was led by Project Management Students to showcase their knowledge in projects planning and execution. One of the highlights of this presentation is the launch of the 'Organ Donation Awareness Campaign'. Inspired from the quote "That if one person donated his organs after cerebral death, it can give life to 7 patients on waiting list", this avant-garde campaign received an enthusiastic support from the students and faculty members who are willing to participate and donate. Currently, 120 students and faculty had already signed up as donors. The project organizers are expecting for more people to take part as they continue to spread awareness in the College.
How it started?
A JUC student had seen this project assignment as an opportunity to bring awareness on organ donation to her schoolmates and as well as to the faculty. She has been a volunteer in the Saudi Foundation for Promoting Organ Donation (EITHAR) when she asked the assistance of the organization to bring the campaign in the College. EITHAR is a non-governmental organization that aims to promote organ donations in Saudi Arabia by creating awareness about organ donation from living and non-living donors (after brain death donation) in order to meet the urgent needs of organ failure patients.
This campaign aims…
- To promote organ donation and transplantation as a treatment for many life threatening diseases such as heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, diabetes and cystic fibrosis.
- To help the hospitals in East Province to have a database from the collected applications of donors.
- To convince people by filling the agreement application that can be as a database for hospitals which will increase the chance of donating organs after person declared brain dead.
- To provide support, care, information and advocacy for people with end stage organ failure, and to convince donor's families.
The College expressed its appreciation through supporting this campaign as it continues to create more awareness and service to the people.
