Who We Are

There is an urgent shortage of organ donors in the UK, and sadly hundreds of people

are still waiting for a transplant, and some die waiting.

    The Jain and Hindu Organ Donation Alliance is a Charitable Trust (Charity No: 1200476).

    Before its charitable registration, the Alliance was known as the  Jain and Hindu Organ Donation Steering Group which was established following a meeting in Parliament organised by Lord Jitesh Gadhia and Kirit Modi in July 2019.  The Alliance has established a national reputation for leading on organ donation in our communities and is regularly approached by NHS Blood & Transplant and others to work with them. The work is now extending to promote blood and stem cell donation to help those in need of these as well.

    Our work extends beyond raising awareness and includes:
    • Development content, including short films and promotional material on the change in the law to Deemed Consent (Opt-Out) in England in partnership with NHSBT.
    • Support community organisations in seeking funding to promote organ donation through the Community Investment Scheme (CIS) and contributing to reports and strategies.
    • Facilitate and provide speakers/ambassadors to promote awareness at local and national events.
    • Create and promote campaigns, including the Paryushan and Diwali and resources that will encourage communities to discuss organ donation and ultimately register their organ donation decision.

    We are grateful for the support and guidance of our Patrons
