    MOHAN Foundation's Transplant Coordinator, Mr Jagdish Borude, who works at Sassoon Hospital, was on rounds in the evening. At 6.00 PM Jagdish saw the case file and came to know of the patient's expiry. He read through the files and checked if all parameters were conducive for tissue donation.

    Jagdish approached the grieving family members and counselled them for corneal donation. He explained to them how a single decision of theirs could give sight to two human beings. After explaining the process and counselling them, they agreed for corneal donation.

    Jagdish coordinated with doctors of ophthalmology department at Sasoon Hospital and took consent from patient's relatives. The corneas were successfully retrieved. Jagdish thanked the donor family and immensely appreciated them for their noble decision to donate their loved one's eyes. He then handed over to them Appreciation certificate for eye donation.
