Bharat Organ Yatra 2.0
Organ donation is the mounting need of the hour. Despite the existing organ donations in India, there are only 1 for every million people who donates organs and more than 500 people die each day waiting for organs. This alarming figure needs immediate remedial actions.
ReBirth Foundation has been working on spreading awareness about organ donation since 2015. Out of the many innovative initiatives of ReBirth, Bharat Organ Yatra was conceptualized to reach the masses.
