Multicultural Resources

'DonateLife … the greatest gift’ is a suite of community education resources for people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities aimed at increasing family discussion about organ and tissue donation decisions. It’s an important conversation to have.



The'DonateLife... the greatest gift' resources were developed through a process of consultation with religious and cultural leaders, for people of Jewish, Hindu, Orthodox, Buddhist, Islamic and Catholic faith. These resources are also available in Vietnamese, Chinese (traditional) Greek, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Hindi, Turkish and English.

To complement this suite of resources, OTA has also produced the following resources in multiple languages:

  • The DonateLife-AODR brochure in 18 languages (Arabic, Chinese (traditional), Greek, Hindi, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, Vietnamese, Chinese (simplified), Korean, Sudanese, Somali, Dari, Punjabi, Indonesian (Bahasa), Macedonian, Serbian and Croatian).
  • DonateLife Donor Family Support materials in 18 languages (Arabic, Turkish, Hindi, Spanish, Korean, Sudanese, Somali, Dari, Punjabi, Indonesian (Bahasa), Macedonian, Serbian and Croatian).

Many religious and cultural leaders have generously signed DonateLife Statements of Support to demonstrate their support for organ and tissue donation to their communities.

Additional culturally-appropriate resources are available, produced by community partners through the OTA’s Community Awareness Grants Program. The OTA thanks the organisations and communities involved in producing these important resources.

We welcome comments and feedback on the resources to enable us to improve the usefulness and cultural appropriateness of the materials. A feedback form is available here
