A first in Liver Transplant in India – Networking works wel

A 30 year old was declared brain dead in a hospital in Hyderabad. The family was very motivated to donate all the organs of their loved one. // MOHAN (Multi Organ Harvesting Aid Network) Foundation’s counselors were called in and they provided the family with emotional support while the formalities were being undertaken.

MOHAN Foundation has its network spread in three to four states and also maintains a time sensitive waiting list of patients in its network who require a transplant. It is one of the few such organization in the country and has made it possible to share over 300 kidneys, liver, heart and corneas between differ
