On 13th August 2018, MOHAN Foundation Mumbai was invited by Ms. Shraddha Gaikwad of M/s. Eureka Forbes, for conducting an awareness talk on organ donation.
Ms. Shraddha Gaikwad introduced MOHAN Foundation to the audience and invited Ms. Jigisha Yadav to share further details.
Ms. Jigisha Yadav began with the introductions, saying that many die due to organ failure due to unavailability of life-saving organs in time and the main cause for this is lack of awareness.
After sharing MOHAN Foundation’s mission and objective, she asked the audience as to what came to their minds when they thought of organ donation. Many came out with positive responses.
The concept of organ donation, types of death, the organs and tissues that can be donated after cardiac death and after brain death, the concept of brain death, difference between brain death and coma were all covered. The myths and facts relating to organ donation were discussed and information about organ allocation and distribution were also shared.
A few queries were raised and satisfactorily answered by Mrs. Jigisha Yadav. Few of them took the Pledge. They were given the option of taking the pledge online on MOHAN Foundation’s website. Around 60 employees attended the session.
We thank Ms. Shraddha Gaikwad (Community Developer) for inviting us and supporting the cause of Organ Donation.
