Last rights courtesy of government for organ donors

Measures are being taken by the Presidential Task Force on the Prevention of Kidney Disease to include a person’s willingness to donate their organs on their IDs and driving licenses.

The President’s media unit said that measures would be taken to appreciate this noble deed by those willing to donate their organs and the cost of their funerals would be borne by the government.

In an accident if a person is rendered brain dead, or in the case of those who have consented to donating their organs, it should be notified to the Kandy Hospital Organ Transplant Coordinating Office on Telephone Number 081-2226522.
