Support The Cause of Organ Donation
Join The Walkathon on November 25
Every year, nearly 5 lakh people in India lose their lives waiting for an organ. Our nation's rate of organ donation in 2014 was a dismal 0.8 donors per million population. The demand for organs far exceeds its supply.
Our campaign More to Give aims to highlight the need and importance of organ donation. ‘NDTV Fortis More to Give Walkathon – A Step Towards Organ Donation’ is part of the initiative to mobilise citizens in this direction. The Walkathon hopes to take the cause to the streets and urge people to pledge their organs and join the movement. You too can be part of this cause and help save lives.

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.
