NHS Blood and Transplant

Why Sadhu Vaswani Centre has taken up this project:

  • The awareness for Organ Donation within the Sindhi and Asian community is low.
  • The community members who want to donate organs, do not know how to register.
  • The waiting list of Organ Recipients is long within Sindhi and Asian Communities when compared with that within other communities in England.

Our campaign objectives:

  • Increase awareness of the law change among Black, Asian and minority ethnic people living in England.
  • Increase the proportion of Black and Asian people who have told their family /
  • Increase the proportion of Black and Asian people who have told their family / close friends their organ donation decision.
  • Increase the willingness to donate among Black and Asian audiences
