Pledge Your Organs, Help Save Lives
Every year, about 5 lakh people die awaiting organ transplants due to non-availability of organs. The current organ donation rate in India is 0.5 donors per 10 lakh people as compared to over 30 donors per 10 lakh in some Western countries. NDTV and Fortis Healthcare has taken up the cause of creating awareness around the loss of lives that happen for the want of organs. You can also be part of the campaign and take the pledge to donate your organs.

Organ Donation: Profiles
A joint initiative by NDTV and Fortis, More to Give, aims to raise awareness about organ donation. It hopes to motivate people to donate their organs by highlighting the urgent need for donors across the nation. The wide gap between the number of transplants our country needs, and the transplants that occur is a worrisome reality.
