Creating awareness on organ donation
One of the key objectives of Amit Gupta Foundation is to create awareness in the community on organ donation and its acute shortage in India. With this objective of building a more responsible society, AGF conducts various sessions on organ donation throughout the year in various corporates, societies, educational institutes, hospitals etc.
Such sessions also encourage people to come forward and willingly pledge their organs through an Organ Donation Card. AGF also works closely with Hospitals to give the ‘Gift of Life’ by facilitating organ donation for patients with organ failure.
In 2015, such sessions have been held at the following locations:
- Bal Sahyog, CP Delhi in April, 2015
- CICO Gurgaon Factory in May, 2015
- Mayur Vihar Police Station in 30th May, 2015
- Young Women Christian Association (YWCA), CP in May, 2015
- Govindpuri Police Station in August, 2015
Visit to Hospital
The medical social worker of AGF, regularly visits hospitals to interact with Dialysis & Transplant patients and guide them about proper care.
Families of such patients are given mental support and counseled about the treatment, costs, post hospitalization medical care, diet and other needs that in turn help such patients lead an active life going forward.
