It has been estimated that 5,00,000 people in India are annually diagnosed with organ failure needing transplantation as part of life saving measure. A majority of these patients are young where their only hope to a life is by the opportunity of having a transplant of their organ in failure.
Taking the initiative in Rajasthan, Govt of Raj accredited NGO MFJCF (MOHAN Foundation Jaipur Citizen Forum), is working since last three years for this noble cause. With the help of it's efforts in last three years 9 hospitals including SMS Hospital have been registered for Organ Transplantation and with 29 cadaver donations, life of 110 patients have since been saved. Still hundreds of patients are registered and waiting.
Lack of awareness is the main cause of refusal by family members for organ donation which can be improved only with the help of creating Awareness among the society. Awareness drives and workshops are regularly organised to fill this knowledge gap.
Taking it further; Awareness Talk on Organ & Tissue Donation and Transplant in our school was organised to promote of the noble cause. This talk was of around, 1 hour for class 11th, 12th students and teachers.
