Nayati healthcare has announced the commencement of the organ donation awareness programme.Â It aims to educate and raise awareness about the importance of saving lives.
The programme will beÂ focus on sensitising the communities about the urgency to donate organs to save precious lives. The awareness drive kick started with a jointly organised programme by Nayati Medicity, Organ Donation India Foundation, Rotary Club Moodbidri and Rotary Club Mathura Central.
Niira Radia, Chairperson, Nayati Healthcare, said: We ventured into the region with the objective of bringing the most advanced medical care and facilities which till then were only available in the metros. Almost three years back we started our flagship multi super specialty hospital in Mathura. Immediately after the commencement of the hospital we realised that the need for cancer and transplant program is utmost in this region and hence created one of the best cancer centers where end to end cancer care was available and simultaneously started our kidney transplant program.
We have witnessed the mounting number of people wanting organ transplant in our region. It pains when people lose their lives because of unavailability of healthy organs for transplant. Our endeavor is to make transplant treatment services within the reach ofÂ the masses both breaking the geographical distances and economic barriers, She further added.
Speaking on the occasion Lal Goel, Chairman, Organ Donation India Foundation, said: I applaud this initiative by Nayati Healthcare. Each year over 1.5 lakh people in India die in road accident. But due to lack of awareness about organ donation many lives which could have been saved are lost. There is a strong need to educate people on the importance of organ donation especially in these regions.Â It is truly a noble act and can go a long way in saving lives.
