Following which a proposal to conduct this training in other branches of Bal Bharti Public School across Delhi-NCR was forwarded to Mr L. V. Sehgal (Principal, Bal Bharti Public School). The session at Noida branch was organised to sensitise the students on organ donation and to discuss the modalities of conducting Angels of Change training for the students from classes IX-XI.
The session focussed on basic concepts of organ donation and transplantation namely the 5 W's, why, when ,who, where and what can you donate, brain stem death, difference between coma and brain death, cardiac death and tissue donation.
It was a comprehensive and interactive session where students had clarity on the said subject and could easily relate to technical terms like brain death and coma. Close to 29 students attended the session.
