Synchrony Dialogues – Religion and Organ Donation


On 14th October 2020, MOHAN Foundation organised a Synchrony Dialogues webinar titled, ‘Religion and Organ Donation’ to affirm that no religion forbids the practice of organ donation and transplantation. Mr. Sudhir Dewan, Director - North, MOHAN Foundation, Chandigarh and Dr. Ravi Wankhede, Honorary Director & Centre Head, MOHAN Foundation, Nagpur were the speakers. Mr. Dewan shared with the audience that Dr. Wankhede was a living kidney donor who had donated his kidney to save the life of his Muslim friend. Mr. Dewan also said that he was a liver recipient and that he was alive because his son-in-law, a follower of Jainism, had donated a part of his liver to him. Dr. Satya Vrat Sharma, Advisory Member, MOHAN Foundation from UK who participated in the webinar said, “There is nothing greater than the humanitarian act of donating organs. There is a huge need in spreading the right information to people about religious views on organ donation.”
