Stamps for World Transplant Games in South Africa


To celebrate the triumph of the human spirit and the hope that is behind every organ transplant, the World Transplant Games 2013 held in Durban from 28 July to 4 August 2013. The South African Post Office marked this special event by issuing ten stamps and two commemorative covers.

South Africa Transplant Sports Association (SATSA) started off as the Transplant Games Association of South Africa (TGASA), which was established in April 1994 by a small group of organ transplantees. They felt the need for an organization that would promote an active lifestyle and an involvement in various sporting activities for transplant recipients. These goals have been pursued ever since and a South African team has participated in every World Transplant Games since 1995.

In September 2006, the Association’s name was changed to South African Transplant Sports Association (SATSA) and a new Constitution was adopted. SATSA is a member of the World Transplant Games Federation (WTGF) and is recognized by the South African Department of Sport and Recreation. It is also an Affiliated Member of the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC).
