After long perseverance, the law has changed in 2020. Hopefully, more people from Asian backgrounds will now donate their organs after death.

At the moment only 8% give...there are 31% Asians however on the Transplant Waiting List. 

But if you feel you do not want your organs to be donated after your death let your family know. 

The video below explains more. As part of the JHOD- Jain Hindu Organ Donorship Committee Ravi Bhanot is committed to increasing the number of people from the BAME communities giving more blood and organ donorship.
