In an effort to raise awareness of kidney disease and encourage organ donation, the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) of Malaysia has launched an organ donation promotion unit at Sunway Pyramid with the support of Sunway Group.
Located at CP3 of Sunway Pyramid shopping mall, the organ donation promotion unit is the first of its kind in a shopping mall in Malaysia. Full-time healthcare professionals from NKF’s Public Education Department will be employed at the organ donation promotion unit to provide easily accessible information for organ donation and allow visitors to sign up for organ donation.
The official launch was officiated by the guest of honour, Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Datuk Seri Razman M. Hashim, Deputy Chairman, Sunway Group.
Funds for the organ donation promotion unit came from the NKF Charity Dinner organised by Sunway in May last year. The charity dinner raised RM750,000 that went towards the establishment of the organ donation promotion unit.
