NHSBT took a moment to consider living kidney donation this World Kidney Day on Monday 10th March and shared the powerful story of JHOD Secretary Prafula Shah and her niece Shakti across their social media channels to raise awareness of living donation.

Living donor transplantation opens up opportunities for patients waiting for a kidney transplant by minimising the time people need to rely on dialysis and by offering patients who wait for the longest chance of a successful transplant.
