From 2008 until 2017, Indonesia imported 800 corneas of the eye. Even so, that is not enough to fill in the gap. Jemaat Ahmadiyah Indonesia (JAI) – Indonesian Ahmadiyah Congregation – Community offers a solution through Keluarga Donor Mata (Eye Cornea Donors Family).
It was such emotional dawn at a house in Tenjowaringin Village, Selawu sub-District, Tasikmalaya. The family and relatives of late Susi Fasalawati gathered, reciting prayers and Al Qur’an verses to send their departed family member.
This funeral procession is not the usual one. Apart from reciting the prayers, there was also a cornea surgery belonging to the late Susi. The cut-off time is within 6 hours after the donor is deceased.
