Rivlin honors families of organ donors

In an emotionally charged event on Wednesday, President Reuven Rivlin and his wife Nechama hosted donors and recipients of life-saving organs in a tribute to ADI, the National Transplant Center.

The center was named for Adi Ben-Dror, a young man who waited for a kidney transplant that was ultimately unsuccessful.

While waiting for a donor, he asked his parents why there was no such thing as a donor card that would authorize using the cardholder’s organs after his or her death to save another person’s life.
