Welcome message of “Bangladesh Renal Association” for deceased-donor kidney transplantation.

About cadaveric organ donation, we need to sensitize and motivate our people that “There is no bigger donation than donating your organs”. It can bring happiness and smiles to others. By just donating an organ; you can continue to live forever. People who donate organs are blessed as they give others a second chance to live for others. It is in your hands to pass on your life to someone who is in dire need of it. Donate your organs to give someone another chance to live.”
No religion formally obliges one to consider cadaveric organs “a societal resource” or considers organ donation “a religious duty”. There is no bar for age or caste or color or religion. Come ahead and take part in saving numerous lives by organ donation.
"If cadaveric transplantation can be done on a big scale, thousands of lives can be saved. But we have a religious misconception which should be addressed," In the future, through the passing of the law such a Cadaveric donation of organ will bring many painful lives to an end with a new life with smile.
Prof. Dr. Md. Nizamuddin Chowdhury
