KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 16 – Kidney failure patients nationwide need to wait for an agonising five to 10 years before they can undergo organ transplant.

National Kidney Foundation (NKF) head of public education, Maznifah Fatah said the waiting period was quite long as only one per cent of the nation’s 30 million population had pledged to donate their organs.

“This is because of the lack of public awareness on the importance of organ donation to help those in need,” she said when met at an organ donation campaign held at the Besraya Headquarters, Lok Yew Toll Plaza here today.
