More than 80000 CRPF personnel pledge their organs

The commitment of the Central Reserve Police force to serve the nation even beyond death, led the force personnel to join hands with ORBO and AIIMS Delhi for a massive organ donation campaign-'e-sanjeevani'. The campaign which started on the eve of Independence Day 2020 culminated on 27th November- the National Organs Donation Day. In a short span of time, the campaign has garnered pledge of more than 80000 personnel and their family members. Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare Dr. Harsh Vardhan graced the Webinar that marked this momentous occasion. The minister lauded the efforts of CRPF, ORBO, and AIIMS Delhi that had led to such significant increase in number of organ donations in a brief period. He called the endeavour unprecedented in magnitude and inspirational for the nation. The minister also commended the fact that the force, in addition to its versatile role in tackling the Internal Security challenges of the country, has not only pledged to serve the nation beyond death but is also motivating the civilian population to join the noble cause of Organ Donation. The force personnel had also joined the Cyclothon to raise nation wide awareness about organ donation on 22nd November which clocked 5000 Km at the completion.
