PLEASE SAVE ME FROM ORGAN THIEVES

Pledge your organs to save children from the clutches of organ traffickers.

31st JAN | 10 AM - 1 PM

ST. XAVIERS COLLEGE, MUMBAI

India has among the lowest rates of organ donation in the world at 0.5 donor per million population, which is far less compared to over 30 donors per million in some western countries. On an average, five lakh Indians die every year unable to get an organ transplant in time due to the shortage of organs.

The skewed balance between the demand for organs for transplant and organ donors in India has created the black market of organs run by organ traffickers. The price of this imbalance is paid by poor children and young adults from remote areas. Every year, thousands of vulnerable children die a gruesome death to fulfill the ever increasing demand for organs.

 

In order to bring youth's attention towards this heinous and inhumane nexus of organ trafficking, Harmony Foundation is organizing Youth Against Organ Trafficking Conclave in Mumbai on 31st Jan 2020 at the prestigious St. Xavier's College.  Join us and listen to international experts discuss the impact of Organ Donations on Organ Trafficking and get a chance to pledge your organs to save children from the clutches of organ traffickers.
