Life2Life is an organisation that was founded to educate and raise awarenessof blood and organ donation, primarily within the South African Jewish community.
This includes the donation of blood, platelets, bone marrow, kidneys and other organs from living or deceased persons where appropriate.
The organisation is founded on the principle in Jewish thought that a person who saves a life, saves an entire universe. This concept is a fundamental principle in Jewish thought and overrides almost every other commandment. Life2Life does not provide medical services but rather directs potential donors towards appropriate medical service providers who excel in their fields and will ensure the donor experience is as safe as possible as well as uplifting.
In addition, Life2Life aims to create a database of potential donors so that when a patient approaches the organisation in need of one of the above-mentioned medical donations, a potential donor can be identified and directed to the necessary medical facilities for further testing to become a direct donor.
