If not now, when?
The time had come that we the members at Rebirth, ask this question to ourselves. We felt we are blessed that life has gifted us with so much. And it’s time now to give back to the society. We were seeking for an answer for, when, where and how would we contribute to the society around.
In this journey of seeking, our roads crossed and stumbled on this cause of, “Awareness on Organ Donation” while we were to create a movie on a social message at an event at Life School (Inspirational Training Organisation). Truly in gratitude to Life School that it initiated our journey towards this noble cause. While we were in the process of creating the movie, we met amazing people in the city who have been working relentlessly in this for almost 2 decades. We found there are Counsellors, hospitals and Doctors all playing their role at their individual ends, amazingly well.
However, surprisingly we found that there is so much which is still required to be done. We found that there is no centralised system, no single source of helpline or any other system working towards generating awareness and hence we (Pune city rather Maharashtra) doesn’t stand great when it comes to Awareness and the work, the success of Organ Donation. On the analysis, there is definitely an improvement on the success rate yet we believe it could be far better if there is a centralised system working towards it.
We realised that there is a need and an opportunity to play our role on this.
And so we are here.
