Anudaan – Making Transplants Affordable

Organ donations are increasingly saving lives and organs are being transplanted across gender, caste and religious identities in many states of India. These acts of solidarity and generosity are something to celebrate. However, there is a spoiler in this inspiring tale.

Organ transplants in India are prohibitively expensive

A huge number of organ failure patients are not benefiting from this life-saving procedure advancement in medicine. They are ill-equipped to bear the financial burden of the transplant and subsequent follow-ups and therefore cannot avail this option.

There are very few public hospitals performing transplants. More than 95% of organ transplants, especially of organs like the liver and heart are currently performed only in the private sector where costs range from Rs. 20 to 25 lakhs. Even the relatively less complex kidney transplants cost between Rs. 8 to 10 lakhs.

Like in many other spheres, the poor by the accident of their birth stand little chance of receiving life-saving transplants.

More State Governments need to pave the way for making transplants affordable and help patients with post-transplant medication support. Until then, NGOs and such entities need to come forward to bridge the gap.

MOHAN Foundation has been working relentlessly to increase the deceased organ donation rate in various states, across India. It gives us great pleasure to now announce our endeavour, Anudaan – Making Transplants Affordable for providing help to the economically poor and needy patients, so that they also can have access to life-saving organ donation and transplantation.

This endeavour has been made possible by the generosity of philanthropic individuals, corporates and other entities. We encourage contributions to the corpus so that more patients can be supported under this initiative.

Moved by the plight of this young girl, Shirisha set up an online fundraiser. “I got their case as a request for donation. Looking at their condition & after studying their financial issues, I started a fundraiser for them, but was unable to raise the money needed for surgery. I anyway told them to go ahead with the surgery and promised them that I will personally pay if I am unable to get donations.” This Good Samaritan had raised 40% of the surgery cost on the online fundraising campaign on ‘gofundme” but had hit a roadblock thereafter. That’s when she reached out to MOHAN Foundation.

Anudaan Team looked closely at the request and after receiving the required information and the requisite documents, decided to support Susmitha with her transplant.
