The audience consisted of around 120 members. Mrs. Jaya Jairam explained to them what Organ donation was, which organs and tissues could be donated and under what circumstances, why one needs to think of Organ donation and what are the myths and barriers that create a negative mindset of public towards organ donation. She lastly shared her own story of how her mother saved her life by donating one of her kidneys to her.
