Mumbai: The Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) is spreading awareness among university students for organ and tissue donations if, accidentally, their brain is dead.

"A record number of organ donors was seen in the United Kingdom last year, with the number of donors increasing by the most significant margin in 28 years".

In British Columbia, 363 people have registered their decisions online since Friday evening, a BC Transplant spokesperson said in an email, compared to 59 registrations over the weekend of March 24 and 25, which is more typical.

She thinks the conversation around organ donations should begin in schools. "The people that get his organs are going to have a chance at a good life".

As April is "Be A Donor Month" the idea for the public outreach was meant to "make a lot more noise" to educate people about the importance of registering as an organ donor, said the organization's president and CEO Ronnie Gavsie. "We work with empathy and compassion and coordinate things and just try to make it as seamless as possible", Allen says.

"I want everyone out there to put their name on the donor list because you can save so many people's lives if you just do that", an emotional Susan Procack told CTV Toronto.

"We encourage everyone to show us your Donate Life colors on April 13 by wearing blue and green", said Dawn Poythress, RN, director of the medical/surgical and cardiac care units at Newport Medical Center.

In Utah alone, there are around 800 people waiting to receive a transplant. He had made it known to his family that this was his wish, according to Langevin.

"In the absence of the facilities at the GMC, the blood samples of the donors and the recipients are sent to Mumbai for tissue typing or matching which at times could be inconvenient and hence there is a need to set up these facilities at the GMC", said a senior faculty member.
