  • On 8th March 2020 on the occasion of International Women's Day, MOHAN Foundation in association with Transplants – Help The Poor Foundation conducted an awareness session on organ donation for teachers at New Horizon School located at Sakkardara, Nagpur.

    Ms Prarthana introduced MOHAN Foundation and asked the teachers about organ donation but as all were non-medicos they were totally blank and had no idea about the organ donation and they knew about eye donation only.

    Ms Prarthana then explained the concepts of organ donation, why and when is organ transplantation required. She also explained various organs that can be donated, types of donors, types of death, viability of organs after retrieval. She then explained the difference between brain death and circulatory death. She also elaborated on the Transplantation of Human Organs Act, and discussed about the myths and misconceptions related to organ donation. She also briefed about Skin donation, Eye donation, Organ donation and Body donation.

    Following were a few questions asked:

    • Can a cancer patient donate their bones after death?
    • How can someone register online to get a donor card?
    • Difference between body donation and organ donation?
    • Can a person donate his body after organ donation?

    Ms Prarthana answered all the queries promptly. The session was attended by 12 teachers. About 10 teachers took pledge and few filled online. We thank Mrs Krishna Naidu (Principal of New Horizon School) for inviting us for conducting session and supporting the cause of Organ Donation.
