KUALA LUMPUR: The people can now get organ donor registration forms at selected post offices.
The project is a collaboration between Pos Malaysia Berhad and the Health Ministry in conjunction with the ministry’s Organ Donation Awareness Week running from Oct 16 to 24.
The ministry appointed Pos Malaysia as an agent to enable Malaysians to obtain donor registration forms at 19 post offices, and plans to extend the service to more post offices in the near future.
Pos Malaysia group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Syed Faisal Albar said the outlets selected were general post offices (GPOs) and post offices in the Klang Valley with a high volume of customers.
Participating GPOs include Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam, Kuala Terengganu, Alor Setar and Kuching. The post offices in the Klang Valley include the ones in Medan Tuanku, Gombak, Bangsar, Kelana Jaya and Kampung Tunku.
“Currently, more than 147,092 people have pledged to donate their organs and we believe many more are willing to pledge,” said Faisal.
The organ donation registration forms are specially-made postcards with the organ donor pledge card attached.
Customers only need to fill the form and mail it with a 60 sen stamp to the National Transplant Resource Centre. They also need to keep the donor card.
