Some 20,000 more Israelis have registered in the last two months for ADI (Israel Transplant)'s list of potential donors. The total number of ADI registrants now is 370,000, which is still inadequate but a definite improvement. ADI ran a special public awareness campaign in recent months on the importance of families agreeing to donate vital organs from their deceased loved ones to save others' lives. Health Minister Ya'acov Ben-Yizri will on Thursday meet heart patients at Sheba Medical Center who are attached to temporary artificial pumps while waiting for a human heart.
