My Medical Mantra completes 3 years, one of the organisation’s main focus is to raise awareness on organ donation and it is its mission to spread a word on the importance of organ donation among people.
In the last 3 years, My Medical Mantra has been successful in spreading awareness about this noble cause. Through its organ donation campaigns on Twitter, it helped Aaradhya Mule get a donor heart after a year-long wait.
The #SaveAaradhya hashtag was trending in different parts of the country including metro cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, Nagpur. We were the first to report on her family’s struggle to get a donor’s heart and gather funds for her operation. While we did a series of stories on her deteriorating heart condition, we decided to have a social media campaign too.
It has also helped children like Danashree Mujmule, Krishna Sadgir and Suhana Sheikh receive a donor heart through its awareness campaigns on social media.
It also won the social media award from the state of Maharashtra for a documentary on organ donation. My Medical Mantra released a coffee-table book titled ‘Healthy Maharashtra’ which is a compilation of interviews of all stakeholders in the field of medicine and healthcare.
It has also run campaigns like #DoctorNotGuineaPigs to highlight that doctors shouldn’t be food tasters for dignitaries and high-ranking government officials. It also ran a campaign on #NoMobileKnowFamily which spoke about the dangers of excessive smartphone use and the effects it could have on personal relationships.
During Navratri, My Medical Mantra has done prominent stories focusing on women. With this year’s theme being women transplant coordinators who have played an important role in the field of organ donation.
And the theme for 2018, was the role of women in healthcare and medicine and the difference they make.

We also ran stories on affordable transplants. Globally, we have been looking for ways to make transplants affordable for one and all. In order to make it affordable, My Medical Mantra had started a series that robes in every stakeholder from the government to the common man to bridge the gap between the donors, recipients and the hospitals.
