Organ Donation in Costa Rica… Oh… and Grab a Kleenex.

January 24th, 2016

I thought that I might share this short video. The content of course crosses international boundaries, but the idea is to get you thinking,


Donating your organs is possible in Costa Rica.  Theoretically you can do it via your residency card or drivers license.  Your might be able to do it through your attorney.  Sound vague? Welcome to Costa Roca

Also… There seems to be some conflict though as it is unclear who owns your body after death.  You or your survivors.

Anyway, by all means think about donating organs.  It’s a good thing.

    As an option to a traditional burial or cremation, Costa Rica’s UCIMED University offers a logical solution upon death.
    The process Is very simple, just call and make an appointment then go and fill out a short form. Once you’re enrolled in the program, they will pick you up from wherever you breathe your last breath and take care of everything. Call; 2540-0000, ext; 1119 or 1136. Departamento de Ciencias Morfológicas.

    Seeking further information concerning body donation.

    Do you offer speaking with someone fluent in English ?

    Appreciative for your timely response.

    Donating organs: Wouldn’t that possibly include the total donation of your body? AND maybe after they’ve done whatever cremate the body and return the ashes to the widow? There’s an organization that does it that way. The ashes bit, I think, is payment for giving them your carcass. Sounds fair to me. It’s not only organs, but for student surgical instruction.

    Still love Costa Rica but what going on with the increase in Dengue fever and Chickunguna virus. Should I just stay in Canada and freeze my arse off?
