On 6th February 2018, MOHAN Foundation Mumbai was invited to create awareness at K C College of Engineering, by Mr. Bhavesh Sao of the Youth Red Cross for creating awareness among the students and teachers.
Around 80 students and teachers attended the session. Mrs. Jaya Jairam explained the concepts of Organ Donation, why was it the need of the hour, what is brain death and what is natural death, which organs and tissues can be donated and when. She went on to speak about the myths and barriers to organ donation in India. She shared her own story of how she received a kidney from her mother and was saved.
Many students and teachers took the pledge and vowed to discuss with their family about their wish.
