Conference on Organs-Tissue Donations

To commemorate National Organs Donation Day the National Organ & Tissue Transplant Organization (NOTTO) organized a one day conference of all the State Health Secretaries, Directors of Health Services and other stake-holders in the cause of Organs-Tissue Donations.

Dadhichi Deh Dan Samiti (DDDS) was invited to participate in the conference. Shri Alok Kumar, President DDDS addressed the conference on ‘The Role of Religious Leaders and Elected Representatives in the cause of Organs-Tissue Donations’.  

It was very useful session where he emphasized that it is true that religious orthodoxy prevents people from donating their Body-Organs. However, it is equally true that religion when properly applied can be the most effective motivating factor for such donations.All major faiths support body/organ donation. Many even actively promote it.Maybe within there are different thought on donation, but all accept it down to individual choice.  He referred to the video messages of Revered Sri Sri Ravishankar, Pujya Morari Bapu and Didi Maa Sadhvi Ritambhara in this regard .
