November / 2017

“We express our deep sadness for the tragic loss of two young people in the recent road accident. At the same time, on behalf of the medical community, we would like to express our gratitude to the victim’s family - recognizing their brave and noble decision, whilst in mourning, to donate their son’s organs to save other human lives.
 
Organ donation is an act of altruism and humanity. This terrible accident and the noble decision of the parents should induce us to discuss the matter of organ donation with our families, bearing in mind that we or someone close to us may one day need a transplant. We would also like to call on the relevant authorities and bodies to do whatever is necessary to reduce road accidents and the loss of human lives.”
