HAR GHAR HAI DONAR

LET'S PLEDGE TO DONATE ORGANS--SAVE LIVES BE OUR ASLI HERO

Lakhs of people in India need an organ transplant every year. Five lakh annually to be precise. 0.01 percent of citizens across India are organ donors. Even this number is going down. Each one of us can save lives. As individuals. As a family. The first step is to just pledge to donate.
HAR GHAR HAI DONOR is Project Mumbai’s effort to build awareness so that more people pledge to donate. This is in partnership with

AMAR GANDHI FOUNDATION and supported by ROTTO-SOTTO.

This is not just about one person-the ME. But about the collective. The WE. Can we come together as a family and donate our organs?

YOUR ORGAN DONOR STATUS ON YOUR DRIVING LICENCE NOW:

Project Mumbai has partnered with the Government of Maharashtra, Transport Department to enable this. 
The next time you apply for a driving licence, don’t forget to look at the questions carefully. One of them asks you whether you wish to pledge to donate your organs.
The Options are Y (Yes) and N (No).
Your clicking on Y can save so many lives.
Be our Asli Hero and click Y.
 
For those with existing driving licences, there is good news too.
You can go on to the RTO website and seek an amendment and, with one click choose the Y (Tes) to pledge to donate.
For a small fee, your duplicate licence will be delivered to your doorstep with the words ORGAN DONOR printed on it.
Amazing isn’t it?

Maitri

 Providing meals, medicines and groceries to over 10,000 senior citizens and people with disabilities or living alone.

Our first actionable initiative began even before the lockdown was announced. Our army of volunteers swung into action to provide this service.

 In several cases, we dipped into our resources of donations to pay for the groceries of those who could not afford to purchase. This was to reach out to those, who were under home quarantine as a part of the air travel protocol.

 We provided this service as we did not want them to feel compelled to step out.
