Riteish champions the cause of organ donation on KBC
This Friday, as part of the Karamveer episode, KBC will feature Dr Sunil Shroff, founder and managing trustee, MOHAN Foundation and accompanying him on the Hot Seat will be actor Riteish Deshmukh.
Started in 1997, MOHAN (Multi Organ Harvesting Aid Network) Foundation is an NGO in the area of deceased organ donation and has been working towards spreading awareness for organ donation since last two decades. Riteish recently pledged to donate his organs along with his wife, Genelia, on a social media platform.
“We (Genelia & Riteish) have been thinking about organ donation for a few years now. During this lockdown, we got a lot of time to think about what we should do. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a lot of information on organ donation like where to go and how to go about the process. One day, we decided to make a video and said we want to donate whatever possible. We often speak about afterlife or punar janam but kya yehi janam kisi ki aankhe ya dil banke ho sakta hai? Why not?”
