Organ Donation Day

The Organ Donation Day is celebrated on the 13th August to increase awareness about the organ transplantation and to encourage people to pledge their organs. Patients with organ failures can lead near normal lives, if they receive an organ from a donor on time. In addition, tissues like the cornea can help a blind person see. Unfortunately, the list of people waiting for a transplant cannot be compared to that of available donors - in India, the gap between the donors and the recipients is huge.
