    Participants were interested to know the concepts of organ donation and to promote the cause. It was an interactive session with question and answers - some of them asked about the process of pledging for organ donation and what happens if the patient’s family denies to give consent even if the patient was in possession of a donor card. The audience assured that they would discuss the need and importance of organ donation with their family and friends. Around 12 people had attended the session and two signed up as organ donors.

    At the end, Mr. Kamble delivered the vote of thanks, mentioning that the session was very helpful and motivated all the participants to pledge for organ donation.
