Multicultural Perspective

Donation Among Multicultural Communities

Multicultural, ethnic communities, specifically in Texas, make up more than half of the transplant waiting list. In contrast, a much smaller percentage register as donors or authorize donation for their loved ones, whether it’s because of cultural barriers, religious beliefs, misperceptions, or lack of knowledge about the process.

By recognizing our differences and customizing our messages, we have the ability to offer hope to these communities.
