I had a liver transplant 13 years ago- Jazz Gill
I had a liver transplant 13 years ago in BC and soon as I recovered I started volunteering with BC transplant because I wanted to give something back from the life I've received through Organ Donation. Then I discovered something while working as a Volunteer, the South Asian Community was almost unconscious about the Organ Donation registry and a lot of effort was needed to bring awareness. It was hard doing it alone and trying to convince everyone to be on the same page as I was.
Then, In 2013 I was introduced to Loveen Gill and Amar Karma by my sister-in-law. 2014 we introduced Amar Karma in BC at the Vaisakhi parade, we got a huge response. It was nice to find not only Loveen but a whole group of volunteers who shared the same goal as me...Bringing awareness amongst the South Asian Community.
Everyone at Amar Karma is very supportive and motivating. Everyone is here to help each other and grow more and more every day. There’s still a lot of work we have to do by bringing awareness and educating our people about the importance of Organ Donation. “It truly is the most expensive gift you can give someone, that doesn't cost you anything".
