Welcome to the Matnat Chaim organization!
On Wednesday, April 2, 2014 a kidney transplant took place in Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York. Please add the recipient, Bat-Sheva bat Cyril (a resident of Jerusalem) and the donor, Avigayil bat Dinah (a resident of New York), to your prayers. The match between the recipient and the donor was done with the help of the Renewal Organization.
On Sunday, March 30, 2014 a kidney transplant took place in Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva. Please add the recipient, Avraham Chaim ben Rachel, and the donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, to your prayers.
Matnat Chaim is Hebrew for Gift of Life. The goal of Matnat Chaim – volunteers for kidney transplantation – is to encourage voluntary kidney donation and to make contact with potential matching recipients. All donations are purely voluntary – this is termed “altruistic” kidney donation. We also make every effort to simplify and shorten the administrative procedures involved.
