  • On 17th January 2022, MOHAN Foundation was invited by Mr. Ramesh, NSS Program Officer to conduct an awareness talk on organ donation for their NSS students.  Around 60 students and 10 teachers attended the session.


    In the beginning, Ms. Neha Sharma Katoch introduced herself and asked the students, “which organs can be donated while living”? Most of the students were aware about kidney transplant.


    Participants were given an introduction and presentation on organ donation and brain death.


    In this talk, she explained the following points: -

    • Organ donation and its need
    • When and how does organ donation take place
    • Organs that can be donated during life and after death
    • The transplant waiting list in India
    • Brain death
    • Difference between brain death and coma
    • Contraindications to organ donation
    • Transplant Law
    • Role of MOHAN Foundation
    • Organ donation myths and facts
    • Eye donation


    The entire group got motivated and convinced to support the cause of organ donation. The awareness talk ended with a vote of thanks by Mr. Ramesh. He encouraged the students to sensitize the society about organ donation and also how undergoing an organ transplant can lengthen a person’s life and allow those with a chronic illness to live a normal life span. He ended up saying that pledging for organ donation is a generous and a worthwhile decision that can save lives.
