Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about organ donation. More people should donate their organs than they may imagine. Both an individual and society as a whole benefit from it.
There are thousands of people waiting for organ transplants every day, but they are only forced to wait because there aren’t enough donors. In reality, it’s a life-or-death situation for those with end-stage organ failure. Donating an organ enables individuals to live healthier, pain-free, and more productive lives.
For people who have run out of options for hope, organ donation is a chance that can save their lives. It can improve people’s lives and transform them for good. It is essential to raise awareness about organ donation since the demand for donors grows every day.
Due to ignorance or being duped by illicit organ merchants, many people decide against organ donation. Better steps must be done to raise awareness about how one donor’s body may save up to 50 lives. To encourage more individuals to show their support, the government must implement programs that aid organ donor families.
A donor may also give ligaments, tissues, tendons, skin, kidneys, liver, lungs, and other organs. Patients who are HIV positive can also donate their organs to HIV-only patients. Organ donation has no age restriction because only appropriateness is taken into account. It is a huge asset in medical research and not just an assistance. Thank you.
