Facing the Facts

Year after year in Canada, thousands of people with end-stage kidney disease wait for a donated kidney to become available. Too many of them will die waiting  – as the prevalence of kidney failure continues to rise, the need for kidneys is outpacing the supply of donors.

The Kidney Foundation is determined to increase organ donation in our country - and you can help. This year during the National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week (April 19-25), print and distribute our Facing the Facts poster in your community to share the latest statistics on kidney disease and organ donation in Canada.

The Ripple Effect

Like a stone thrown in a lake, volunteer efforts make a positive impact, far and wide, to improve communities. Our volunteers work tirelessly to raise awareness of kidney disease and organ donation, raise funds to make our work possible, and raise spirits when a helping hand is needed most.

This year, during National Volunteer Week (April 12-18), take a moment to celebrate the volunteers among us and say Thank You.
