ORGAN India and Ms. Meenakshi Lekhi recently joined hands for a collaborative effort for a campaign on Organ Donation which will help many people. Ms. Aarty Singh, an art curator and a social activist, has taken the initiative to bring us together.
Inspired as a young child by a chapter about Dr. Christiaan Barnard, a cardiac surgeon who performed the world’s first human heart transplant operation in 1967, Ms. Meenakshi Lekhi found herself drawn to the concept of a life being saved by the selfless act of organ donation. While personally championing various efforts encouraging others to donate their organs once they die, and in some cases while they lived, Meenakshi Ji still found the need to further reach out and educate the masses on Organ donation. ORGAN India, an initiative of the Parashar Foundation not only spreads awareness on organ donation, but helps others get through the ordeal through our helplines and our Transplant Guide.
We look forward to going to schools, colleges, RWAs, community centers, and reaching out to a plethora of people across Delhi and India through this collaboration.
