- There are millions in this country who need an organ for survival. If they get an organ, they can get a new life. Each year, hundreds of people die while waiting for an organ transplant.
- There is a shortage of organs, and the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of people waiting for a transplant is getting larger.
Actress Swara Bhaskar appealed everyone to donate their organs. She said, “Everyone should do their bit for the society. So, nothing like organ donation. One donor can save up to 8 lives. People should think about it. Everyone should participate in this campaign.”
Speaking to My Medical Mantra, Nagraj Manjule said, “One donor can save up to 8 lives. Nothing can be important than saving someone’s life. Owing to which, I supports this campaign. Everyone should come forward to create awareness regarding organ donation.”
