Dear Editors,
Yesterday, Facebook announced that users will be able to update their Timeline with an organ donor status. The move, Mark Zuckerberg, its founder, said will shed lights to 114,000 United States citizens waiting for live-saving organs.
If you have pledged to donate your organs after death and on Facebook, do update your status by going to your Timeline, click on “Life Event” and then “Health & Wellness.” You’ll see the option for “Organ Donor” and can add when and where you registered and your personal story. Asians may only get to update their status later.
For those who would like to pledge their organs and register as a pledger, Voice of Women Association Kuala Lumpur and Selangor also developed a Facebook application for Malaysians. You can pledge organ on Facebook via the pagehttp://facebook.com/SpreadLoveSaveLives and click on the PLEDGE NOW button.
In Malaysia, we have 15,000 people awaiting organs and over 13,000 are kidney patients on dialysis program. Hundreds of people die every year due to lack of organs. With only less than 200,000 or less than 1% of Malaysian population pledged their organs, I feel the 15,000 waiting patients will see no light at the end of the tunnel.
Each person who donates all organs and tissues after death could save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of over 50 people. Let us give hope and shed lights to patients in the waiting list. Spread love and save lives, pledge your organs today!

卓天,面子书(Facebook)披露了用户们将能够以器官捐献者的身份更新他们时间轴(Timeline)的状态。面子书首席执行官马克.扎克伯格认为,这个举动将可以让更多人得悉在美国有11万4千个等着救命器官的人。

如果你登记了在死亡后捐献器官,你可以在面子书上更新你的状态,到时间轴页面点击“生活事件”(Life Event),下拉菜单至“健康与保健”(Health and Wellness),然后你会看到“器官捐献者”的选项。你可以加上你什么时候和在哪里登记捐献器官,当然还可以分享你个人的故事。

至于那些想要报名成为捐献器官的人,雪隆女声也为马来西亚人推动了一个面子书申请。你可以在面子书上通过此链接http://facebook.com/SpreadLoveSaveLives,点击“现在登记”(PLEDGE NOW)的按钮,立即成为器官捐献者。

在马来西亚,我们有1万5千个人在等待器官和超过1万3千个人是仍在洗肾的肾功能衰竭患者。每年有数百人因为器官短缺而丧失性命。正因为只有少过20万或者少过百分之一的马来西亚人口登记成为器官捐献者,我觉得那1万5千个病患不会看见希望的光芒。

每一个在死亡后捐献器官和身体组织的人可以救上8条人命甚至能让超过50人生活得更好。让我们一起来为在等待器官移植的病患带来希望并且让更多人知道此情况。传播爱,拯救生命,今天就捐献器官吧!
