It's time to talk about organ donation


Dr Zul Mirza, Consultant in Emergency Medicine at West Middlesex University Hospital, and clinical lead for organ donation will be talking about the challenges caused by misinformation within the Muslim community around the subject of organ donation.

Muslims in England are having to wait longer for receiving an organ donation, and this is causing unnessecary harm and hardship. It’s now time to talk about this.

Come and join us for a discussion about this under reported issue within the community. We’ll be serving a delicious ‘home-cooked’ style 3 course meal, along with fresh fruit smoothie and speciality ‘karak’ chai at the venue near Whitechapel station: ‘Basil Garden’.
