The Honourable Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare, Shri J.P. Nadda launched a Body Donation Directory made by the ORGAN India, an initiative of the Parashar Foundation on May 12, 2017 at an event ”Organ & Whole Body Donation Awareness Campaign 2016-2017 held by Lady Hardinge Medical College and Dadhichi Deh Daan Samiti. Our Trustees Ms. Kirti Parashar, Ms. Anika Parashar, CEO ORGAN India Ms. Sunayana Singh, Chief Consultant Ms. Eeda Gujral Chopra, Project Managers Dr. Sourabh Sharma and Jasneet Kaur were all present for the launch.
It has taken our dedicated team 6 months of hard work to gather data from all States in India where body donation is possible. The Directory is now live on our website www.organindia.org and any person in any State in India can go to the Directory, choose the city in that state for which they want the information, and get a drop down menu of all Medical Institutions or NGO’s where they can pledge or donate their bodies – along with the names, phone numbers and email id’s of the exact people to call. With a click of a few buttons, anyone in India will have access to this information which otherwise is difficult to obtain.
We hope that it will go a long way in helping simplifying the noble act of body donation for people across India, leading to many more bodies being available for donation. Please do spread the awareness about this directory in any way that you can so that everyone can know about this service that ORGAN India is providing.
We would especially like the thank Dr. Jagdish Chandra, Directory Lady Hardinge Medial College, Mr. Alok Kumar, President Dadhichi Deh Daan Samiti, Dr. Kaur and Dr. Sheetal Joshi for all the support we needed to launch this Directory.
