Introduction: Jain Samaj Manchester in association with Vanik Council UK have invited medical surgeons, doctors, nurses and patients who have undergone treatment to provide you with in depth information on these matters. This event will include talks on kidney disease, preventing kidney disease, as well as treatment options including dialysis and kidney transplants. You will also have an opportunity to have your questions answered by these professionals
Living donation is when someone donates one of their organs – usually a kidney – to someone else, whilst they are still alive. Most of us can live perfectly well with only one kidney, and yet nearly all of us have two.
Most often living donors are close relatives or friend of the recipient, but you can still donate an organ to someone you do not know.
You can also donate part of your liver.
Why do we need living donation?
Around 5,000 people in the UK are in need of a kidney transplant and across the UK, more than 250 patients died last year waiting for a kidney transplant, due to a shortage of organs
