The Process of choosing a donor
The entire egg donation process takes approximately 3 months to complete. There is no waiting list and you may ask any donor on our database to donate immediately.
We have beautiful donors (inside and out!) from diverse racial groups throughout South Africa.
To gain access to our secure donor database and view these young women, we ask you to register online. Once your details are verified, you will be sent a link to your email address enabling you to browse our list of active donors.
Our user friendly and easy to navigate website is designed this way to keep your stress levels down and allow you to focus on what is important: choosing the right donor for you.

Your Sunshine Support Assistant is well equipped to answer your many questions. She will contact you soon after you register with The Sunshine Egg Donor Program, getting to know more about you and where you are in your search for a donor. After you find a donor and all your required tests are done, you are ready to begin! While the fertility clinic screens your donor and starts your medical management, we stay in touch, maintaining open communication and a continuity of care.
All our egg donations are anonymous. No identifying information of recipient or donor may be revealed to either party. South African legislation prohibits any donor agency showing adult donor photos. Our comprehensive, detailed donor profiles are accompanied with baby and/or childhood photos of each donor. Confidentiality and anonymity of both the donors and the Intended Parents are guaranteed throughout.
The Sunshine Egg Donor Program is accredited by and fully compliant with the regulations and guidelines outlined in the Southern African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynecological Endoscopy Regulations (SASREG). http://www.fertilitysa.org.za
The South African National Health Act (Act No. 61 of 2003) regulates the donation of gametes and the management of egg donation cycles. The accredited clinics strictly adhere to these regulations during their medical treatment.

As a mom of two angels, I could not possibly imagine my life without them. I've always felt passionately about helping those who could not have their own children, even before I had my own. And as a 6 time donor, I feel that I have helped in some small way, and love the fact that by helping couples to find their perfect donor and supporting them through such a trying time in their lives, that I can continue to help.
For Intended Parents who will travel far from home, we would like to ensure an enjoyable trip by offering travel information, accommodation to suit your needs, ways to keep costs down and general handy tips along the way.
In-between clinic visits there will be time for sightseeing, a chance to nurture your inner-self or to simply relax in comfortable surroundings. We have a list of reputable services offering tour-guides, safe transport options, therapeutic treatments and interesting places to visit.

Every country in the world displays some diversity, but South Africa, stretching from the hippos in the Limpopo River to the penguins waddling on the Cape, takes some beating.
It befits its position at the southern end of the world’s most epic continent, with more types of terrain than photographers can shake their zoom lens at. There’s the deserted Kalahari, Namakwa’s springtime symphony of wildflowers, iconic Table Mountain and Cape Point, Kruger National Park’s wildlife-stalked savannah and, running through the east of the country and into Lesotho, the Drakensberg. KwaZulu-Natal’s iSimangaliso Wetland Park alone has five distinct ecosystems, attracting both zebras and dolphins.

South Africa’s currency is the rand (R), which is divided into 100 cents. There is no black market. The coins are one, two, five, 10, 20 and 50 cents, and R1, R2 and R5. The notes are R10, R20, R50, R100 and R200. There have been forgeries of the R200 note, and some businesses are reluctant to accept them.
The best currencies to bring are US dollars, euros or British pounds in a mixture of travellers cheques and cash, plus a Visa or MasterCard for withdrawing money from ATMs.
There are ATMs in all cities in South Africa, most of which give cash advances against cards belonging to the Cirrus network.
Credit cards are widely accepted in South Africa, especially MasterCard and Visa. Nedbank is an official Visa agent, and Standard Bank is a MasterCard agent – both have branches across the country.
