Police Recruit School Supports Organ Donation

Updated on Friday, March 30, 2018
  • MOHAN Foundation was invited to conduct an awareness program on Organ Donation for the newly appointed Grade II Police Constables. The invitation was given by the Police Recruit School, Avadi. The training took place in the Police Training College, Ashok Nagar on 29th March 2018 at 2 pm. Dr. Hemal Kanvinde and Mr. T. S. Siva Shankar were deputed by MOHAN Foundation.

    The session started with a pre-survey on Organ donation. Each constable was given a survey sheet to fill up. The session was then taken over by Mr. Siva Shankar who explained the concepts of Organ Donation. He explained the following in depth:

    1. Activities of MOHAN Foundation
    2. The organs that can be donated
    3. Types of Organ Donors
    4. Brain Death and Coma
    5. Age criteria on Organ Donation
    6. Donor Card and Helpline Number

    The session lasted for 45 minutes. Dr. Hemal Kanvinde conducted a small quiz on some of the medical terms and diseases that cause organ failure. Everyone enjoyed the quiz.

    Towards the end of the session, registration forms were issued to the participants to register as organ donors. Of the 150 Police Constables that attended the session, 102 registered as Organ Donors.

    Questions and discussion after the awareness –

    1. Why is Organ Donation not done after natural death?
    2. If the blood pressure and pulse is not normal, can organ donation happen?

    MOHAN Foundation thanks Mr. A. Elangovan, Assistant Law Inspector - Police Recruitment School, Avadi and the constables for supporting the noble cause in saving lives.
