About us - Live Beyond Life Foundation

About LBL Foundation

We have thought through our name as we help everyone make an action plan to “Live After Death” through organ donation.

All must face death, an inevitable eventuality, at an unknown time.

And what better deed, at the end, of an eventful life journey?

You leave some organs behind to give LIFE to those who need it, rather than turn them into soil or ash.

We need not waste the organs by burial or cremation after we care for them all our lives to keep them healthy.

Organ donation extends our life on earth and prevents waste after we die.

An eye to the cornea blind, skin to burn patients,a kidney to one who needs daily dialysis at great cost, or a transplanted heart, a liver, or alungare ways a dead person can live through organ donation.

What can be better than your heart beating inside someone who needs it the most -as your legacy or precious gift of life to a fellow human being who needed your heart the most after you? 

Indeed a “Karma”, a last best deed “TO GIVE” as your last Will and Testimony.

You need to Give others all your life, but this “GIVE” of donating your organs to needy people will be the epitome of donation.

Surpassing all your lifelong good deeds and by which you will ensure that you will “Live Beyond Life.”

Our objectives:

  1. We pledge to spread awareness amongst the community, to give life and an improved lifestyle to the ones who need organ transplantsandto improve the lives of their families.
  2. We promote healthy organ maintenance by educating people to prevent heart disease and diabetes to protect their kidneys and other vital organs to reduce the demand for organ replacements.
  3. We shall sponsor cadaver transplants among patients who cannot afford expensive transplants and maintenance by matching the data with zonal transplant coordination centres (ZTCCs).

With the above objectives, the Live Beyond Life Foundation ensuresa better quality of lifefor people needing organ donations and preventsthousands of deaths from organ shortage.

Each brain-dead donor can save the life of a minimum of eight lives when the former’s life support system keepsthe latter’s vital organs functioning.

After the death of a person, their families can donate their eyes and skin by contacting the Life Beyond Life Foundation, which arrangesthe collection of those organs from the deceased person’s home.

Let uspledge to Save Lives and LIVE BEYOND LIFE together.
