The Adi organ-donor card

Dvora Ben Dror, the creator of the Israeli organ-donor card, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 93.

She founded the Adi card after her son, Adi (Ehud) Ben Dror, passed away due to a chronic kidney illness in 1978, after failing to secure a kidney donation.


Today, nearly 1 million Israelis are registered organ donors out of a population of more than 8 million.

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