Bharat's story

Bharat donated both kidneys, his corneas and other tissue.

Bharat fell ill suddenly at his family home in Middlesex in 2019, after suffering a cardiac arrest caused by a blood clot in his heart. He died a few days later in hospital.

His wife and two sons agreed to organ donation because they felt helping others was part of Bharat’s nature, and in line with his beliefs and faith system as a Hindu.

It just felt like, someone’s got to benefit from this at the end of the day and it’s not us, so why not someone else?

Every day across the UK, someone dies waiting for an organ transplant.

The law around organ donation in England has changed to help more people pass on more organs to save and improve more lives.

You still have a choice if you want to be an organ donor when you die.

Whatever you decide, make sure you let your family and friends know.
