Trained Angel of Change volunteer for organ donation donates his mother’s eyes.

Mr. Parthasarathy, a painting contractor by profession, joined MOHAN Foundation as a life member in 2017. He convinced his family members to sign up for organ donation on Jan 1, 2017. Later, he joined the Foundation as a volunteer to undertake the Angels of Change Volunteer Training in June 2017. Post the training he continued to promote organ donation by making posters and advertisements that had organ donation messages.

His mother, Vatsala, a central figure in his family, took care of his children and home while he was busy travelling in and around Tamil Nadu undertaking painting jobs and contracts. At the age of 74 she started complaining of knee and shoulder pain. She was taken to a hospital in Chennai for observation. During the course of her stay in hospital she was detected with some heart problem for which she underwent angioplasty but later died of cardiac arrest.

Mr. Parthsarathy on his own called up Shankar Netralaya(reputed eye bank in Chennai) and coordinated the donation of the corneas of his mother. He says that though he misses his mother terribly but the fact that she is alive in someone gives lot of solace to him and his family and gives them strength to move on.

Highest Tribute to Organ Donors at the height of 5380 meters

Ms. Pallavi Kumar, (Executive Director –NCR) undertook a very unique and challenging journey last month to pay the highest tribute to organ donors and their families.

On May 4, 2018, she summited the Everest Base Camp reaching an altitude of 5380 meters (17600 feet above sea level) and unfurled a flag expressing her respect and thankfulness to the many organ donors and their families.

The trek involved walking 130 kms over 12 days (walking an average of 10 kms every day, some days up to 18 kms). On the day of the summit, it was snowing and temperatures dipped considerably, dropping to -17 degrees. With numb hands & feet and braving icy winds, Pallavi reached the Everest Base Camp and tied the flag sending out a strong message for the need for organ donation.

“The trek involved dealing with cold, exhaustion and high altitude acclimatization. On some days, the oxygen levels were so low that every step fatigued you. It was so tough at times that I questioned my sanity, as to why did I ever decide to do it. But what kept me going was my strong need to reach the top and the inspiration I took from families who have made this tough choice in their hour of grief and loss” says Pallavi

He plans to take the message of organ donation to every nook and corner of the world by way of this road-tripstarting from Mumbai and terminating in London, covering 14 countries and travelling 22000 kms in 60 days. He is accompanied with his wife.

On April 23, 2018, MOHAN Foundation organised a flag-off at State Bank of India Building, Nariman Point, Mumbai, inviting State Bank of India’s senior management to do the honors. ShriRajnish Kumar Chairman, State Bank of India, who strongly believes in inspiring by example, said “Everyone must support this cause. I have registered myself as an organ donor. Many of my colleagues have also taken the pledge. On this occasion, I urge all my employees to spread awareness about the cause of Organ Donation”.

Ms. Jaya Jairam Project Manager, MOHAN Foundation Mumbai added, “We are proud of the initiative undertaken by Mr.Chilana. We are coordinating with other organizations promoting organ donation ofthe countries through which Mr.Chilana will be driving through, so that they can welcome his team and share his inspirational story in their country”.
