August 13 is Organ Donation Day. Aishwarya Trust remembers and thanks to all Donor families for their noble act, which has helped give a new lease of life to all those patients who have suffered organ failures.
There are many myths and fears about organ donation, mainly because of a lack of awareness. This day aims to dispel these myths and motivate people to pledge their organs for donation while letting their families know of this wish.
Today, let us all commit ourselves to spread the awareness and importance of organ donation.

Organ transplant is the last mode of treatment for end-stage organ failure.
