ORGAN DONATION Awareness Session - Let's Gift Life
Time & Location
About The Event
Donating an organ after death is more than just the physical act of giving a part of a body that is of no use to the individual anymore. It is about celebrating life!
In India, the current organ donation rate is 0.26 donors per million population as compared to more than 30 donors per million in some western countries. There is a serious shortage of organs and the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of people waiting for transplants is ever increasing. According to one estimate, 90% of patients waiting to receive an organ die without getting one.
Often, we do not understand the importance of organ donation until one of our loved ones are in need. One of the other reasons is also lack of awareness on the life-saving process of organ donation itself.
To aid this, VFC through it's cause Let's Gift Life (LGL) is organizing an awareness session in which we'll address needs, concerns and importance of organ donation. The highlight of the workshop is that if you are willing to pledge, you can get to register yourself as an organ donor and get a pledge card.
