My aunts age is 50 yrs. approx. and as per Doctors, her both kidneys have damaged 90%. We want kidney transplant. Can you suggest if there is any donor bank for this.

I can understand your concern,but there is no such thing existing as it is not possible to preserve the kidney beyond a certain point.
Secondly the answer lies with you as the best donors are the close relatives of the patient.
THere are other options like exchange/swap donation, cadaver donation,so do not get disheartened & make all out efforts for the options mentioned.
Lastly a word of strong caution for you to not fall in a trap to get a kidney on sale or other such advertisements.
Best Of Luck

There is no such thing as "Donor Bank" anywhere in the World. It is illegal to advertise for kidney donation and a commercial donation in India is illegal. There is severe punishment for the same.

I hope this forum is good and it is a job of specialists like us to make sure wrong messages do not spread !!

keep posting your problem and the blood group and you might get help from some forums like this. 

My cousin's mother had got similar problme and he found this forum where he could find a donor. He is actually happy with what has happened.
