On this week’s podcast, Ed Thornton talks to Joe Walsh, founder of Faith in Operation, an initiative which invites Christians to consider giving a kidney to a stranger.
They discuss the prospect of this “altruistic kidney donation” ending the transplantation waiting list, as well as Joe’s own experience of kidney donation and the effect of the coronavirus on those awaiting transplants.
“After giving my kidney, I started to wonder why there was never any concerted Christian effort to promote altruistic kidney donation, because they just seem to fit so neatly together.”
