Donate Organs – Save 10 lives

Every year hundreds of Indians die while waiting for an organ transplant. There is acute imbalance between the number of organs donated and the number of people waiting for a transplant. If everyone pledges their organs & tissues to be donated upon death or brain stem death, many people would be given a second chance at life 🙂
That is why I chose to pledge organ donation at Indian government organization :- http://www.notto.nic.in/donor-pledge.htm

Organ Donation in India

Almost 1.5 lakh people in India need a kidney; however, only 3000 of them receive one.
Only 1 out of 30 people who need a kidney receive one.
90% of people in the waiting list die without getting an organ.
India’s annual liver transplant requirement is 25,000, but we manage only about 800.
70% liver transplants are taken care of by a live donor, but 30% are dependent on cadaver donations.
