New Software for Matching Kidneys

"Matnat Danielle" - new unit for matching kidneys

A new medical unit was announced last week to help match kidney donors to those in need of a transplant, in honor of Matnat Chaim’s 10th anniversary.

The unit will use an advanced software program to facilitate finding kidney matches for those who suffer from high levels of antibodies, making the process of finding a new kidney difficult. The software was made possible due to a donation of the Danielle Sonnenfeld Foundation, in the memory of Danielle Sonnenfeld, who was killed in a car accident at the age of 20 in 2015.

The new unit will be called “Matnat Danielle” (“Danielle’s Gift”), named after Sonnenfeld.
