Health agency encourages immigrants to become organ donors

The National Transplant Organization (NTO) is reminding Muslims that Islam allows for adherents to engage in organ donation. The ministry put into motion a campaign to promote a culture of donation and transplant among immigrant communities in Spain. The slogan of the campaign – your heart knows no color or culture along with information published in Spanish, French, English, Romanian, Chinese, and Arabic, are meant to reach members of Spanish population and make them feel more comfortable about donating organs of loves ones. The NTO also cites a verse in the Quran to reach out to Spanish Muslims… And that whoever saved a life, would be as if he saved the lives of all mankind.
