On March 11, 2023, MOHAN Foundation organized a soulful online concert of Sufi music by the talented singer Ritu Nooran in association with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Young Indians, supported by SBI Foundation and SBI Cards.
Ritu Nooran is the granddaughter of famous Sufi singer Bibi Nooran. Even her father Ustaad Gulshan Meer and both her elder sisters — Jyoti and Sultana Nooran are well known Sufi singers.
The evening was organized to celebrate the colours of life and the beautiful act of organ donation—a celebration for those who are waiting for a second chance at life through transplantation, but most importantly, a celebration of the spirit of giving.
The concert was in aid of "Anudaan: Making Transplants Affordable," an initiative of the MOHAN Foundation that supports underprivileged children to undergo life-saving transplants. While the event was provided free of charge, the MOHAN Foundation urged people to open their hearts and contribute to this life-saving endeavour.
The concert was broadcast live on YouTube and Facebook at 7:00 p.m. from the MOHAN Foundation’s channel. The music genre played during this concert was entirely classical, and the setup was also beautiful. In the beginning of the concert, Ritu Nooran performed solo singing; then, in the second half, a duet performance was given by her and her father, Ustaad Gulshan Meer.
During the live streaming, Ms. Pallavi Kumar, Executive Director, NCR, MF, and Ms. Jaya Jairam, Project Director, MF, welcomed and motivated the audience to contribute by donating generously to Anudaan. Many people contributed to the lifesaving cause at the time of the live streaming.
