Over Half a Million Saudis Now Registered as Organ Donors

The Saudi Organ Transplantation Centre has announced that approximately 533,000 individuals have pledged to donate their organs after death.

Riyadh has the highest number of registered posthumous organ donors, totalling 142,000, followed by Makkah with 115,000 donors. The Eastern Province ranks third with about 65,000 donors, while Najran has the fewest, with only 1,500 registered donors.

To date, more than 6,000 organ transplants have taken place since the inception of the organ transplant project in Saudi Arabia.

The Tawakkalna platform, developed by the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) in collaboration with the SOTC, has simplified the registration process for organ donation, contributing to a huge surge in donor numbers.
