Saurav, SAL Hospital, Ahmedabad, Gujarat
It was a great pleasure to get associated with MOHAN Foundation through the Transplant Coordinators Training Program. It was a great learning experience. Though being form non medical background it was not difficult for me to understand the classes. It was just perfectly organized. It would be great if such sessions could be arranged at other locations across the nation to boost up the noble cause.

The whole course is so complete and in-depth, if it would be possible to have recruitment also, campus selection or through the Foundation.
Sivakrishnan D, KIMS, Trivandrum, Kerala
It was nice coming to the training programme and being with people that came from different parts of India. As a trainee those 22 days which includes a "Sunday" was the doorway to so many questions and its answers. As a training institution MOHAN Foundation successfully achieved their goal. Your planning of each session was well organised and gone smoothly. You guys are the fuel for our motivation; the enthusiasm which we express is aroused from your stories of successful management of deceased donors during your working period. Moreover as a Social Worker I had the privilege of being a part of your training programme and I'm thanking MOHAN Foundation and its "BUILDING BLOCKS" for conducting such informative bundles. It was a great time with MOHAN Foundation.
