WITH less than 1% of organ pledgers in Malaysia and less than 50 organ donors, it is rare to see grieving family members giving their consent to donate organs of loved ones.

The family of Tan Ching Chin, who was killed on Valentine’s Day, has done a noble act by agreeing to donate her organs. I hope more people will follow this courageous act.

To ease family members’ grief in making the decision on your behalf, please pledge your organs. You can make your pledge online at http://agiftoflife.gov.my

Online way to make the pledge

WITH less than 1% organ pledgers in Malaysia and only fewer than 50 actual organ donors emerging each year, it is rare to see grieving family members agree to donating the organs of their loved ones.

The family of Tan Ching Chin, who was killed on Valentine’s Day, has done a noble act in agreeing to donate her organs. Ching Chin’s wish has been fulfilled and may she rest in peace.

I hope more people will make the pledge to become organ donors.

With only less than one per cent organ pledgers in Malaysia, it is rare to see grieving family members give the nod to parting with organs of their loved ones.

The family of Tan Ching Chin who was killed on Valentine’s Day, has done a noble act by agreeing to organ donation.

I hope more people will come forward to do so. Organ pledges can be done online at http:// agiftoflife.gov.my.
