At the time of writing the First Reading of the new Legislation that will incorporate all issues connected
with organ donation and transplants was presented in Parliament. As prime-movers of this legislation we
have put forward to the Social Affairs Committee our recommendations, the main ones being the ofcial
recognition of the Donor Card as an oficial document and that the freely expressed wish of a deceased
donor to have his/her organs used for transplantation is honoured.
Meanwhile, our ongoing awareness campaign goes on with our new targets being 4th and 5th Form stu-
dents at our Colleges, this together with a number of Talks at various localities and regular participation
in TV and Radio programmes and other Media contacts.
The new legislation will surely provide a legal backing to our philanthropic efforts.
