Wishing you and your family the very best of health, love and happiness. As we move into 2021, we at WillsMalaysia hope the worst is over and the cure for COVID-19 will reach everyone soon. Here is an idea. How about we start the New Year with a good deed? Have you ever thought about organ donation? Yes, I understand there is a taboo around this topic but I’m going to talk about it anyway.
Organ or tissue donation is a noble practice. It is not new in Malaysia as it is a treatment method that has been accepted in our country. The number of patients who need organ transplants is increasing from year to year, but the number of pledgers who want to donate after death is low. The Organ Donor Card was launched in 1999. It is estimated that over 126,000 donors have been recorded in the National Transplant Resource Centre since then. However the number is very low compared to the population of approximately 27 million people in this country. The National Transplant Resource Centre was established to increase the number of organ donors. It is also to raise public awareness and to provide information about the importance of organ donation.
Organ / tissue donation is the process of donating organs or tissues of the body for the purpose of transplantation into others in need because of failure or damage to an organ or tissues of the recipient. After transplantation, the recipient can go on and lead a better quality of life.
At WillsMalaysia we have a FREE service called MyLastWish where you can document your funeral wishes and organ donation preference. Why let your family guess when you can tell them ahead of time how exactly you want your body dealt with. I’m a strong believer in planning. Get it right while you are still up and around. Start the year with a good deed. What goes around, comes around.
