Continuing its week long campaign to promote Organ Donation as a build up to the Indian Organ Donation Day, ROTTO in collaboration with Shri Shiv ShambhuSeva Dal organised an awareness session alongside blood donation camp at Krishna Market, Sector 41, Chandigarh on 24th November.
On 25th November, ROTTO collaborated with another NGO, Blood Donors Club and organised a community connect camp at Morinda in Punjab.
These camps received good response and in all 92 people pledged for organ donation. The transplant coordinators from ROTTO addressed the myths & misconceptions of people pertaining to organ donation and reiterated it as ‘true gift of life.’
The partner NGOs also urged people to come forward to support the cause by emphasising, “Religion teaches us to uphold the values of humanism and universal brotherhood. In the same vein, organ donation is a way of following religious teachings in the true sense.”
