Founder of Organ Donor Card, Dvora Ben Dror dies, aged 93

The founder of Adi, the Israeli organ donor card, Dvora Ben Dror passed away on Wednesday at age 93.

The Israeli organ donor card is named after her son, Adi [Ehud] Ben Dror who died from a chronic kidney illness in 1978. It was the failure to secure a kidney to her own son that motivated Ben Dror to establish a data base of Israelis who actively wish to donate their organs.

The National Center for Organ Transplants said that "she used to share her personal story with audiences…all to raise awareness to the importance of organ donations."

During her years of volunteering, she was able to recruit families and like-minded people who signed hundreds of thousands of people to the Adi card, honoring her late son and saving the lives of countless people.

Nearly one million Israelis are registered organ donors.

Deputy Minister of Health Yaakov Litzman expressed his condolences to the family.
