DONOR ..... ORGAN FUNCTIONS AS ..... ALL INCLUSIVE PR


Explanation:
What I do not like about the context is the PR = public relartions. What does public relations have to do with an organ donor, unless this is some kind of metaphor.

orgaan = body (not organ)


Explanation:
I would suggest you avoid the word 'organ' as a translation of "orgaan" considering its obvious other meanings.
