The fourth batch of Angels of Change Volunteers Training for Organ Donation that began on December 5, 2016 with students of Bal Bharti Public School, New Delhi concluded on May 17, 2017.

Father spreads awareness on Organ Donation in son’s memory.
MOHAN Foundation was invited for an awareness program on organ donation by SOLOMON MEMORIAL TRUST in Perambur on April 30, 2017. This session needs a mention as it was organized by Mr. David Chelladurai whose son met with an accident nearly a year ago. At the time his son died, he had no idea about organ donation and no one gave him the option for the same. He felt that donating his son’s organs could have saved lives and helped the family find solace in the thought that their son is living on in others. This has encouraged him to create awareness on organ donation.
