Yesterday a national Donor week has started in the Netherlands. During this week, people talk about the importance of organ donation and indication of whether or not you would like to be a donor. At this moment, more than 1100 people in the Netherlands are waiting for an organ transplant and between 130-150 patients die because of lack of transplants.
We too encourage you to make a decision about organ donation and indicate it in your national transplantation foundation.
