There is an urgent shortage of organ donors in the UK and sadly hundreds of people from our communities are still waiting for a transplant and some die waiting.
This Paryushan, the Jain & Hindu Organ Donation Alliance has teamed up with young people and transplant recipients from the Jain community to help – our thanks for their amazing commitment. They are featured in this film, urging us all to think about organ donation sewa this Paryushan to help transform lives.
Despite the law change in May 2020, we still need people from our community to make a positive decision and talk about organ donation with families.The pandemic has also affected the number of transplants taking place with waiting lists increasing.  The latest statistics from NHS Blood & Transplant show there remains an urgent need for organ donors from our communities.
