People on the waiting list in
Jivana Organ Donation society is an organization founded by three transplant recipients who have gone through the mental and physical obstacles themselves. They want to use the second life they have received through organ donation to share their experiences and educate public on the importance of organ donation. They also to be the support for the South Asians and others who may be on the waiting list or the ones going through the post transplant recovery.

if you are South Asian
Organs you can donate
Jivana Organ Donation Society's mission is to raise awareness in the South Asian community about the importance of registering as a organ donor. To educate people on the transplant procedure, eliminate cultural beliefs and myths in the South Asian community which also prevents many from putting their names on the organ donation registry and encourage donors to come forward.
Jivana can also help you make a decision when registering as an organ donor and educate you on the procedures of transplant. We can answer any question you may have about organ donation in Punjabi, Hindi or Urdu.
Over 1,600 Canadians are added to organ wait lists yearly. This number increases every year but that doesn't have to be the case. Register your decision today and encourage other to sign up
