The ALODF wants to stop the cycle of abandonment felt by many living organ donors. Donors are helped by some government and private organizations to get them to and from the transplant center but feel forgotten after they’ve donated. We help donors with support groups and living organ donor networks and also financially if they must take unpaid leave. We feel strongly that society’s obligations to living organ donors does not end with the transplant.
