Giving a Gift – Living Organ Donation
LTI Project 2: The National Council of Vanik Associations (UK)
This project is targeted mainly at the Jain communities in North West London and led by NCVA which is an umbrella organisation representing thirteen Jain organisations in North West London. The project will involve members of the Jain communities and community groups, living donors and recipients, Jains waiting for a kidney transplant, elders and women influential in the community, and staff from local hospitals. The project will develop a DVD on living donation aimed at the Jain communities, a Jain leaflet and arrange at least three community events to discuss living donation and transplantation. Support will be provided to those interested in living donation and those waiting for a transplant. Dissemination of information will take place through the Jain member organisations as well as the web-site and social media.
