Save Lives By Pledging To Donate Your Heart

India's organ donation rate is among the lowest in the world and nationally with a population of 1.2 billion the statistics stands at 0.50 per million population. In India, approximately 50,000 hearts are required for transplants annually as against the availability of 70 hearts. This gap can only be met if more and more Indians pledge to donate. One organ donor can save up to 8 lives. Join the Pledge Your Heart campaign, which is an initiative in support of organ donation, urging people to take the pledge to donate their hearts.
