● Organ donation is the process of surgical removal of an organ or tissue from the body of a donor, in order to transplant the same into the body of a recipient on need , legally with consent of the donor . Organ donation is a very noble act. It allows the organs of a dead person to be used to prolong and enhance the life of a living human being, whose self organ(s) is damaged due to injury or disease.
● Organ donation is very important. Every year , around two lakh kidneys are required to be donated in India . But, the number received is just 7000 -8000. The number of heart , liver and other organs is even less. Due to this, thousands of people die , suffering from organ failure and lack of organs for transplantation. This condition can be made better by donating organs.
The government of India celebrates Organ donation day on 13 August every year, to spread awareness regarding this noble cause.
