More than 100 people visited the information desk. They were given an explanation on organ donation, voluntary body donation, eye donation, brain death, myths and how to register for a transplant. Information brochures were given to all visitors. 

    Thiruvallur area Counsellor Mr. Raju visited the desk and asked about the work of MOHAN Foundation and about Organ Donation.  He pledged for eye donation at the desk.
