New Delhi: Among 500 commoners, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Brinda Karat pledged to donate their organs at an event organised by Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on Wednesday.
However, Priyanka Gandhi was unable to attend the event due to some unscheduled engagements, but she conveyed her message to the people through hospital authorities saying, “You are welcome to count my name as a donor if it helps the cause”.
CPI-M leader Brinda Karat also pledged for the cause and said, “I am totally supporting this cause of organ donation and feeling proud to be a part of such association”.
Sir Ganga Ram Hospital’s late trustee and Chairman Tej Ram had donated his organs and saved the life of a female staff member. Inspired by such act, the hospital authority launched DONATE (The Deceased Organ donation Network and Transplant Education) — the organ donation program, so as to create more awareness about organ donations.
