Malaysian Catholics recruit blood and organ donors during Ramadan
Catholic World News - August 08, 2011
Church leaders in Malaysia are organizing a drive to recruit volunteer blood donors and organ donors during the month of Ramadan.
Donations typically drop off severely in Malaysia—a predominantly Muslim country—during Ramadan, because of the Islamic fast. Church officials have decided to use the occasion to encourage donations. Malaysia has a low rate of organ donors.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
