Jeevan Ek Anmol Uphaar is a weekly radio program to promote organ donation in India. The program, broacast in partnership with Parashar Foundation, is on air every Thursday at 6 pm with repeat broadcasts on Thursday at 11 pm and on Saturday at 8 am.
The goal of the show is to sensitize lakhs of people on the concept of organ donation so that many lives can be saved. Over 5 lakh people face organ failure every year and a mere 2 to 3 per cent manage to find an organ for transplantation. Gurgaon Ki Awaaz listeners are made aware of the various aspects of organ donation and transplantation and urged to join the cause by pledging organs and talking to their families about the subject.
This programme is supported by BOMS Private Limited.
The Organ Receiving & Giving Awareness Network (ORGAN) India, is an initiative that was launched in March 2013 by The Parashar Foundation, (a Delhi-based NGO) to address the dismal state of deceased organ donation in India. We seek to remedy this shortage of organ donors, and help create an ecosystem to facilitate organ donation in India.
The Parashar Foundation was set up in 2000 by the late Ashok Parashar, to help the poor and less fortunate by providing funds to various schools, health centers and other organisations. While our previous work was primarily in the form of donations to various causes, we now have a clear goal; to create widespread awareness on organ donation in Delhi, which will benefit everyone, regardless of religion, age, sex, caste, or social standing.
