New Delhi: Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare J.P. Nadda on Saturday said donating organs is akin to gifting a new life, on occasion of ‘World Organ Donation Day’. The Border Security Force (BSF) handed over 1500 certificates to Nadda pledging to donate their organs at a function organised in collaboration with National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organization (NOTTO).
Nadda added “Donating organs is akin to gifting a new life. Organ is a National Resource and not even one should be wasted. I, therefore, call upon all Indians to Pledge to donate organs after death and save many precious lives. Let organ donation become a national movement and show to the world that even in death; we care for our fellow citizens and the humanity at large. This was a great initiative by BSF and would go a long way in spreading awareness about organ donation.”
