I wish their was more awareness on organ donation. Usually when I go for my lectures when I mention Organ donation they only talk about eye donation. Picture memory is good memory and public remembers Mrs Aishwarya Rai in the famous campaign for eye donation. But, still public needs constant reminders for the same.Basically the word Organ donation simply means the willingness to donate an organ. But donation is the willingness and eligibility of what you have to give. One can donate not only eyes but skin, kidney, liver, heart, lungs, pancreas, tissues etc. With the eyes one can donate skin also after death in the hospital or at home as the team comes anywhere. There are skin banks and eye banks these days but what about other organs? Can anyone donate their organs after their death?
