About Gift A Life Campaign
Each year, hundreds of people die while waiting for an organ transplant. There is a shortage of organs, and the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of people waiting for a transplant is getting larger. Transplants, as an option, have successful outcomes, and the number of people needing a transplant is expected to rise steeply due to an ageing population and an increase in organ failures in India. One of the major reasons is lack of awareness about Organ Donation in India at large where majority of population is still shackled with myths and religious beliefs regarding Organ Donation in India.
Keeping this in mind, National Youth Foundation is promoting a 30 Minutes Documentary “Gift a Life” with an aim to create awareness regarding Organ Donation in India. The Documentary is produced by Ultimate Thinkers & Makers Pvt. Ltd., and directed by Mr. Vijay Raghavan who has worked in number of mainstream Cinema, Documentaries and Spot Ads for more than 40 Years. The 30 Minutes Documentary on Organ Donation shall cover all aspects like understanding Organ Donation, Myths & beliefs, Religion and Organ Donation etc. The Documentary has been extensively shot in various Districts of Uttar Pradesh and has captured Life of Recipients after transplant, Interviews of Families of Donors, Interviews by leading Surgeons, Green Corridor in State and Appeal by leading luminaries and celebrities to join the Campaign.
Our Campaign is duly supported by King George Medical University (KGMU) where Doctors have extended their utmost support for this noble venture. The Documentary shall be taken across India through Social Media, Screenings at Colleges and Other activities to sensitize and motivate people to come forward and Donate Organs so that their Single Live can gift life to 8 Individuals.
