On 22nd July, 2016, MOHAN Foundation Mumbai was invited by Mr. Krishnan, Co-founder of Pepper Wellness to conduct an awareness session on Organ Donation.
Mrs. Jaya Jairam began the session by giving an introduction about MOHAN Foundation and its activities. She explained what Organ Donation entailed and then talked about Organ Transplants. She highlighted the need for viable organs and India’s current Organ Donation rate. She went on to explain how brain stem death differs from cardiac death and the certification procedures involved in it. The cultural and religious barriers and myths related to organ donation were also discussed in detail.
The staff had some specific queries on Tissue and Organ Donation which were answered. A three minute video on the importance of Organ Donation as a Gift of Life was shown.
The employees were given information brochures and some of them pledged their organs.
We thank Pepper Wellness Pvt.Ltd, especially its Co-founders, Mr. Krishnan S., Mr. Sujeesh Menon and Mrs. Bindu Sujeesh for this initiative.
