Organ donation is the last most precious sharing that we can practice do when we die.
This is the sharing of a life that brings hope to patients suffering from pain.
At the moment, a number of patients lose their life or live in pain as they cannot hardly find organ donors for them.
You are the one who can hold their hands and save their lives.
What is organ donation?
Organ donation, meaning that someone shares his or her organ as part of the body with those in need of organ transplant for nothing, is divided into two types: 'brain-death donation' and 'donation after death.'One brain-dead donor can save the lives of 8 patients and bring the light of the world to 2 visually impaired persons.
