  2. Dear Sir or Madam,
    I am working on a research project about the perception on organ donation of Chinese and Malay people in Malaysia.
    Do learn more about the perception of organ donation from a taoist point of view I am interested to talk to someone who is representing the Taoist societz here in Malaysia. Therefore I would kindly ask you for a contact address of the Taoist Association of Malaysia.
