JHOD Diwali Arts Competition

Jain and Hindu Organ Donation Steering Group are delighted to send you information about a Diwali visual arts competition for you to publicise extensively in our community. The purpose of the competition is to encourage the use of visual arts to highlight organ donation during Diwali this year. The competition is for everyone aged five and over and entries should consist of a visual image or a short video. We need more organ donors in the UK and Diwali provides a wonderful opportunity for us to talk about organ donation in our families and help save lives.
