New Delhi, December 05:

Congress president Sonia Gandhi's daughter Priyanka Vadra Wednesday pledged to donate her organs, the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) here said.

"I was supposed to be here at the event, unfortunately I can't come, but you are welcome to announce my name as a donor as it helps the cause," Priyanka informed the hospital authorities through a SMS.

This was announced at an event called The Deceased Organ Donation Network And Transplant Education (DONATE) to promote organ donation.

"SGRH runs one of the most successful organ transplant programme. Though Vadra was not able to make it to the event, we will send the donor registry and the donor card to her residence," a hospital authority told IANS.

Both her children, Raihan and Miraya, were born at the hospital.

According to NGO Mohan Foundation for organ donation, India has 1.4 lakh accident victims who are diagnosed as brain dead annually.

Though the country has 80,000 potential organ donors, organs from only about 120 are retrieved, making the percentage of cadaver donations a dismal 0.08 per million population.
