The Ontario Sikhs and Gurdwara Council encourages people of Sikh faith to register to be organ donors! Sikh teachings and philosophy place a great emphasis on the importance of selfless giving and sacrifice. The Guru Granth Sahib states that “The true servants of God are those who serve Him through helping others.” In accordance with Sikhism, life continues after death through the soul, and not the physical body. The last act of giving and helping others through organ and tissue donation is both consistent with, and in the spirit of, Sikh teachings. Currently in Ontario, there are more than 1,600 people waiting for a life-saving organ transplant and sadly, every three days one of them dies waiting. You have the potential to save 8 lives and enhance as many as 75 others through organ and tissue donation. Show your Sikh pride by selfless giving by registering for organ and tissue donation.
