About The Trust
OUR JENNA LOWE TRUST MANDATE
Twenty-year-old Jenna Lowe influenced massive social change in South Africa. She fought for awareness and support of Pulmonary Hypertension and increased the number of organ donors by tens of thousands with her internationally acclaimed Getmeto21 campaign.
Following Jenna’s death in June 2015 the trustees decided to continue the work of the trust in order to honour Jenna’s remarkable legacy.
The new objectives of the trust are as follows:
- To raise awareness for Pulmonary Hypertension in South Africa, to encourage and facilitate earlier diagnosis, and to provide better care for patients, caregivers and patient families.
- To increase public awareness around the shortage of organ donors in South Africa, address misconceptions and drive registration.
- To create platforms that raise funds for, and donate money to, campaigns and projects that are directly related to Pulmonary Hypertension and Organ Transplantation in South Africa.
- To support projects and people who educate and train individuals, families and organisations in broad or specific areas of Pulmonary Hypertension and Organ Transplantation.
The Jenna Lowe Trust is 100% a not for profit organisation. It remains specifically recorded that no trustee is paid for his or her time in executing their duties as a trustee. Such time is all given voluntarily, free of charge.
