Every year, 5 lakh Indians lose their lives waiting for organs. With less than 500 Cadaveric donations (from a deceased donor) taking place last year, India has an Organ Donation rate of 0.5 person/ million individuals, one of the lowest in the world. In a nation of over a billion people, there’s not even 1 donor in a million.

NDTV and Fortis Healthcare have taken up the cause of creating awareness around the loss of lives that happen for the want of organs. ‘NDTV Fortis More to Give Walkathon – A step towards organ donation’ is one such initiative hopes to mobilise the nation in this direction. The Walkathon aims to inform people about the need and importance of Organ Donation. The registration for the Walkathon is now closed.
