Mr. Jagdish gave a motivational talk on organ donation. He discussed the need and importance of organ donation in India, encouraged and appealed to each one of them to pledge their organs and save many lives. Ms. Jaya Jairam shared her life experience and said that she was alive and happy due to her mother who donated one of her kidneys, thereby saving her life.
It was an interactive session; the audience asked certain questions like process of organ allocation? How does MOHAN Foundation help a poor kidney failure patient for his transplant? Ms. Jaya Jairam answered all their questions promptly and patiently.
A skit on organ donation was then presented in Marathi, by the NSS students of Maharashi Dayanand College (Parel) who has been trained as volunteers of MOHAN Foundation.
