1 brain dead person can save 8 lives after his death. We want to make people realize that we can donate our Organs while living also if we are above 18yrs and even after our we pass away, we have ways to contribute to the society. we will still be able to lighten someones life: just through the simple act of registering as an Organ Donor.India as a country has celebrated & respected culture of giving .
To put others need in front of ones own desire is truly admirable. But this culture of giving is not carried over in the area of Organ Donation not because of lack of intent but because of lack of awareness and concern. So, with this choreography we aim to inspire the masses to take the pledge of donating organs .The activity was performed by 50 student of DAV School along with Aykai Hospital Staffs .
