Abu Dhabi encourages its citizens to sign up as organ donors. The National Programme for Organ Donation and Transplantation, also known as Hayat, which means life, is holding a new drive in an effort to increase the number of people registering to become donors. The program was started by Abdulla Al Hamed, the head of Abu Dhabi’s Department of Health, who was the first to register.
Through the website of the Ministry of Health, people of the UAE can register to become donors.
By enrolling in the Hayat program, anyone may help bring hope to the lives of many people around them, he said.
During the two-day International Conference for Initiatives on Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation in Abu Dhabi, the project was unveiled.
In honor of their contributions to saving lives and preserving the health and safety of the community, the conference featured more than 20 moving tales of organ recipients, donors, and donors’ families.
A total of 147 lives were saved by 39 donors in the UAE last year. There have been 47 donors so far this year, saving the lives of 167 people. The project was started by Abdulla Al Hamed, the head of Abu Dhabi’s Department of Health, who signed up first.
