  • On 2nd February 2021, MOHAN Foundation in association with Transplants – Help The Poor Foundation was invited by Mr Kishor Nagrale (PI) for conducting Organ Donation Awareness session & explain the role of police in the Organ Donation Process.

    Ms Prarthana Dwivedi introduced about MOHAN Foundation missions and objectives. She asked police officials present during the session that what comes in your mind when they think about organ donation. The responses were mixed positive as well as negative.

    Then she explained the concept of organ donation in depth. She also discussed types of death viz. Brain Death & Cardiac Death & also the types of organs and tissues that can be donated after cardiac death as well as after brain death, the concept of brain death. She also explained the difference between Brain Death and Coma. Various myths and facts about organ donation were discussed. Also Information about organ allocation and distribution were shared. Toll Free Number of MOHAN Foundation was also introduced.

    Ms Prarthana also elaborated the legal aspects, the actual role of police when MLC Brain death case comes. We ask them to understand and check Form 8 and Form 10 when hospital request letter comes. She told them as those organs have less time so approval should be made as early as they can and Donor Family should not wait for the NOC from other police station.

    Around 46 police staff attended the session. Some queries were asked which was answered promptly by Ms Prarthana. We thank Mr Kishor Nagrale for inviting us and giving us the opportunity thereby supporting the cause of Organ Donation.
