Eye Donation and Faith & Religion

All the major religions of the world support the principles of organ donation and transplantation. However, within each religion there isa different school of thought, which means that views may differ. All the major religions accept that organ donation is an individual choice.

Engagement with faith leaders and communities is a vital aspect of our strategy to raise awareness of organ donation and transplantation. We need to work with faith groups to increase awareness and build trust, whilst providing the information needed to dispel myths and encourage debate and discussion.
