On March 17, 2020 Dr. Muneet responded to a message written by Mr. P. C. Jain ( Counsellor MOHAN Foundation Jaipur Citizen Forum, MFJCF) on Toll Free Helpline whatsapp group requesting to coordinate a body donation in Rajkot situated in Saurashtra region in Gujarat. Mr. Jain had received a call on MOHAN Foundation National Organ DonationToll free helpline from Mr. Jay Patel, son of Mr. Khimjibhai Ravjbhai Kothia expressing a desire to donate the body of his father who was on his deathbed.

Dr. Muneet contacted Shatayu's Ms. Bhavna Chhabria requesting her to coordinate the donation since MOHAN Foundation does not have a presence in the state of Gujarat. Shatayu is an NGO working in the field of organ donation in Ahmedabad. Ms Bhavna then informed Dr. Muneet that the son wanted information on body donation so that the needful can be done as and when death happens.

On March 18, Mr. Khimjibhai Ravjbhai Kothia expired at 4 am and Mr. Jay Patel called Shatayu's counsellor to coordinate body donation of his late father. Unfortunately body donation could not happen as the medical college refused for reasons not known.

The counsellor then tried for eye donation which were successfully retrieved by Jaytakya Hospital in Rajkot.

On March 04, 2020, Ms Pallavi Kumar received a call from Mr Bulu Behera regarding a call on the helpline from Mr Jitender, SHO of the Kalyanpuri Police Station. He wanted to speak to someone senior from the Delhi office. Bulu had shared Ms Pallavi’s number with him.

As soon as this call got over, Pallavi received a call from Mr Yadav. He informed her that he had been approached by Apollo Hospital Delhi regarding an accident case last evening where the family had agreed for organ donation. He said that he did not understand what his role in the matter was and therefore had refused to give the ‘NOC’ as it wasn’t something he could take responsibility for. Pallavi explained to him in detail regarding organ donation in a Medico Legal Case and the role of the police and the forensic He asked some more questions that were addresses. Other such cases were shared with him as well. Pallavi encouraged him to support the hospital and the family and that it would enable him to do a very noble deed and save many lives.

In half an hour, Pallavi received a call from the Transplant Coordinator at Apollo saying that the SHO had called her back and had asked her to proceed with the case and had offered his complete support. Sadly the brain dead potential donor had sepsis and the donation could not be taken forward.

This was a very unique call as it is for the first time that the helpline had received a call from a policeman. While he had refused to cooperate the previous day, he was not convinced about his decision and he searched online to find the MF helpline and called to get greater clarity. This really demonstrates the expanding role the helpline is beginning to play.
