A matter of life and death
As in any part of the world, every day there are Bulgarians who are in desperate need of a transplantion in order to save their life. Yet, donors of healthy organs are more rare than in most parts of the world. In 2009 there were only 11 donors saving a total of 35 lives. Numbers can hide tragedies. "Transplantations" broadcast by the Bulgarian National Radio BNR tells three different stories, of Lidia, Martin, and Alexander, of hope and of grief, of the struggle for life, and of death. A radio piece by Desislava Popov, sober and simply-put. Disturbing.
