Your contribution can make a difference
Every LIVE Donor, is first subjected to a series of tests, not only to match the tissues of the patient, but to ensure that the Donor is 100% healthy. It is not our intention to save a patient at the cost of endangering the life of the Donor. The transplant takes place only thereafter.

Even after death, your Organs matter
After an accident, if a patient placed on a hospital ventilator is declared
“brain dead”, the heart, 2 Kidneys, Liver, Pancreas, Lungs and Intestines can be harvested.
Natural deaths allow the Eyes & Tissues, etc to be harvested.
A Single death can save upto 8 lives and help 50 other patients to become healthy again.
