BAPS Charities is leading a project to raise awareness about Living Organ Donation among Hindus in a programme funded by NHS Blood & Transplant.
An information leaflet (downloadable from sidebar) and YouTube video have been created specifically to make Hindus aware of the urgent need for living organ donors from a South Asian background.
Did You Know? In 2016-17, there were approximately 1,000 Asians waiting for an organ transplant in the UK. However, there were only 79 Asian living donors and 29 Asian donors after death.
