I read about an initiative – ‘The Second Chance Project’ launched by Radhika, a person who lost a loved one to kidney failure. The initiative offers innovative, easy-to-implement, and cost-effective methods for education and awareness around the importance of donating organs through creative interventions such as street plays and organ donation aprons.
To engage young children, they design ‘organ donation aprons’ by reviving simple household kitchen aprons with colourful drawings of body parts to highlight the importance and function of each organ. Within 11 months, they have sensitized 700+ individuals and registered 50+ individuals to become organ donors through various awareness drives and workshops.
They have started youth-led chapters in Dehradun and Delhi City with plans to expand to Mumbai. I request you and the editorial board to kindly assign a journalist to further pursue this story in detail.
This will spread awareness in the minds of the citizens of our nation and encourage them to take up similar initiative towards the social good of our future generations and the development of our nation.
I am certain that the campaigning for this projects funds will gain traction from all people sensitive towards this issue and concerned for our healthcare.
