Organ Donation -- Let's make a difference returns for its second episode with Dr Mandeep Singh Bindra once again leading the exploration of a very important topic for the Asian and Sikh communities, organ donation.

This time we meet Manjinder Kaur Jagdev whose mother was an organ donor and Anju Kaur who is a recipient who shares her story. Only around 2% of organ donors each year are Asian. Viewers will also learn more about the organ donation process, including the safeguards and support in place. Without donation there cannot be transplantation so more donors from the community are vital.

It is hoped Manjinder's story of the lives her mother saved will inspire members of the Asian and Sikh communities are urged to join the NHS Organ Donor Register and share their wishes with their loved ones.

Sign up now by visiting: www.SangatTelevision.org and clicking on the organ donation icon to place your name on the organ donation register.

Sangat Television hopes that viewers will be inspired by these personal and moving stories. Viewers should find out more about organ donation and join the NHS Organ Donor Register. It is important your loved ones know about your donation wishes.

Members of the Asian community are more likely to need a transplant but will wait longer than the general population for a donor and they may not get the organ they need. Only around 2% of organ donors each year are Asian but the community makes up nearly a fifth of those who need a transplant. From these figures you can see that there is a major shortfall and that this is a major issue within our community.

Members of the Sangat Trust and the Sangat Television team have worked with Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust's organ donation committee and NHS Blood and Transplant team since the start of 2013 to produce this groundbreaking series of television shows to increase awareness and change within the Asian communities. Sangat Television urges all communities to join the NHS Organ Donor Register and tell their loved ones their wishes. There is a real need in the community for more donors. We all need to think about this matter very seriously, the more people that register -- more lives will be saved.
