A memorial ceremony was held earlier this month in Putuo District to mark Shanghai’s 16th Body Donation Day. Donator families as well as volunteers paid tribute to those who gave away their bodies or corneas.
Each March Putuo Red Cross Society organizes memorial activities to pay homage to the previous donators. This year, it also set up a station in Changfeng Sub-district to introduce the body donation procedures.
Medical volunteers went into the communities to give free health consultation and measure blood pressure for local residents.
Putuo’s donator family care campaign was started in 2014. The district now also provides a green medical channel for applicants who come to register for body or cornea donation.
