Steps Pledged so Far

NDTV-Fortis More to Give: Be an Organ Donor

About the Walkathon

Every year, 5 lakh Indians lose their lives waiting for organs. That’s a life lost every minute!Last year, only 800 plus Cadaveric donations (from a deceased donor) took place in our country which represents an organ donate rate of 0.8 person per million individuals. As a comparison, while we are at a fraction of 1%, western nations like the Spain have crossed the 40 per million mark. The size of the task that lies ahead for us has grown significantly. The need-gap of organs and recipients too, is increasing by the hour. And if we do nothing, we leave the fate of these individuals and that of the future generation to come, hanging in the dark.In 2016, Fortis healthcare decided to take up the cause of creating awareness around the loss of lives that happen for the want of organs.

Fortis’s ‘More to Give’ campaign was able to take the organ donation message to millions across the country. The campaign so far has helped 70,000 individuals take the pledge to donate their organs. But sadly, deep rooted superstitions and religious miss-beliefs surrounding organ donation have deterred a significant chunk of the population from taking the pledge.

'Fortis NDTV More to Give Walkathon – A step towards organ donation' seeks to create awareness about Organ Donation as well as mobilise the nation in the same direction. Last year, the walkathon saw participation from 8500 individuals from various corporates, clubs, schools, colleges and NGOs. This year too, the walkathon aims at spreading awareness about the cause of Organ Donation by taking it to the streets of India where the common folks can show their support for the cause and spread awareness about the same.

By being a part of this walkathon, you too can support the cause of Organ Donation and give hope to all those still waiting for organs.
