This Valentine's week, in support for the Spread Love, Save Lives campaign, all proceeds will be donated to the Voice of Women Kuala Lumpur and Selangor organisation.

Hoong Ling, is a living liver donor, professional emcee, author, inspirational speaker, social activist, youth advocate and radio deejay. Advocating organ donation since school days, she has been talking about organ donation, encouraging friends and family members to pledge organs since 1993. Walking her talk, she donated part of her liver to someone, in response to an email for what she first thought was an appeal for blood donation. Braving through tough decisions, and going through a process which left a 14-inch "Mercedes" scar on her abdomen, she has always been asked how the process was like.

Ask no more! She has written all her stories from the beginning till how she leads her life after giving her liver in a book she launched in August 2010 - "I Don't Know You but Let Me Save You, A Liver Donor Recounts Her Journey"!


Giving part of her liver to save a life left a Mercedes scar on her abdomen but also won her the GRAND PRIZE in Mercedes contest!

I Don't Know You but Let Me Save You is also available

"For most Malaysians, organ donation remains an idea far removed from their everyday lives. Until they need one. Hoong Ling has managed to demystify the whole process of organ donation, from signing the pledge to actually donating one, in an easy, even humorous, way. Hopefully this will encourage more Malaysians to pledge their organs and help save lives..."

Women's Rights Activist


Walking with Hoong Ling through the pages of “I Don’t Know You but Let Me Save You” is a humbling experience. It gives an honest account of the spontaneous generosity, the doubts and the dilemma of a young girl who has dedicated her life to giving to just anyone who is in need. She found joy in the happiness she brought to others. This is all the more moving because of the pain Hoong Ling herself went through in her personal life since childhood.

The details of medical investigation and surgery give the patient’s perspective of the organ donation process. It is therefore recommended as a good read for anyone contemplating the process.

I had the privilege of meeting with Hoong Ling who had once served as the President of the Lions Club of Cybercare Kuala Lumpur. She is an example to emulate for those of us who strive to serve the needy.

Her message is clear. ‘It is in giving that we receive’ … many fold. It is hoped that this book will bring about better understanding of the organ donation process and encourage more towards the cause.

Past District Governor, Lions International District 308B1


"This is a heartfelt account about the author's generous act of kindness to donate her liver, of how she faced her fears and doubt and went on to act out her conviction. Someone once said, the fearless are merely fearless; people who act in spite of their fear, are truly brave..."

Tan Sri Megat Najmuddin Khas
President, Malaysian Institute of Corporate Governance (MICG)


"For many of us, organ donation awareness is the first step, signing the form the second step and through our compassionate act, someone receives our organ and has a new lease on life. Together with Hoong Ling who has shared with honesty, humility and a tinge of humor the significant insights through her story, we too will receive a new lease on life on earth - a more meaningful life..."

Rev. Sivin Kit
Pastor, Bangsar Lutheran Church


"... This book allows us to experience one amazing chapter in Hoong Ling's life, a remarkable and brave young lady who has given a part of her - literally - to someone she barely knew. Being a Muslim, although I know that organ donation is permissible, I am still toying with the idea until now. But her book has nudged me to that direction I never though I would consider..."

Zabrina A. Bakar
Bestselling author, blogger and columnist


"Hoong Ling is a very inspiring lady and someone easy to love and care for. After reading her first draft, I found it a privilege to publish her work. You wold have done the same. You will understand why after reading this book. Hoong Ling, thank you for being you..."
