Wuhan plans to build the country's largest memorial square to body donors. Two memorial walls will be built on the 3,000-square-meter site, enough to have more than 6,000 donors' names engraved in the coming years.

Wuhan started to receive body donations in 2000. Since then, more than 800 people have donated bodies, with their names commemorated at Shimenfeng Memorial Park, where a monument was built for the purpose on March 26, 2005.

The monument only has space for 800 names, creating a need to build the memorial square, said a source from Shimenfeng Memorial Park.
