Know the Essence

Organ donation is possible only when a person has been declared brain dead by a team of authorized doctors at a hospital. A person is said to be brain dead when there is an irreversible loss of consciousness, absence of brain stem reflexes, and no spontaneous respiration. The act of organ donation has the ability to comfort grieving families. It is always difficult to lose a loved one. Many grieving families of organ donors draw comfort from the fact that their loss may help to save or improve the lives of others.

The current ratio of donor to recipient is 1:10000, which is an alarming situation. One of the steps to bridge this gap is to create awareness about organ donation amongst people. This is where ReBirth steps in – to spread the message and answer questions related to organ donation.

To further the initiative, ReBirth launches a platform called the “Green Corridor”. An idea, a story, a vision… that’s all it asks for. The Green Corridor is a short film competition open to all those who can present the theme of organ donation. The aim of the competition is to sensitise and encourage people for signing up for organ donation. This will not only increase awareness but also their acceptance levels and willingness. The challenge will be to create a short film up to five minutes (including credits) that resonates with the viewers.

Can you make a life transforming five minute movie? Let the world see it!
