Armed Forces Officers And Other Dignitaries Pledge Organs For Donation

In a unique ceremony, Armed Forces officers including senior doctors and other dignitaries pledged their organs for donation at Army Hospital (R&R), here today. Amongst// others, Ms Nikita Anand and Ms Gul Panag, both former Miss India, Mrs Shyama Chona, Principal DPS, RK Puram, New Delhi, Mr Ajit Bajaj, the first Indian to conquer North & South poles and eminent media personality Col Ajai Shukla, also pledged their organs.

Another unique initiative was also taken by the Army doctors in the form of launching Armed Forces Organ Retrieval and Transplantation Authority (AORTA). AORTA aims to increase awareness of organ donations, organ retrieval and transplantation. The efforts of this Authority will be coordinated by Col (Dr) AK Seth, an eminent super Specialist who has vast experience of organ transplantation.

Very recently Maj Vipin Chaudhary took the noble step of agreeing to donate the organs of his mother, who breathed her last following brain hemorrhage at Army Hospital (R & R). The liver was transplanted, for the first time, at Army Hospital Research & Referral into a serving soldier, one kidney into a serving officer, another kidney into an 18 year old and two eyes into suitable recipients. This selfless gesture affected the lives of five families and served as an inspiration to others. To acknowledge the noble deed done by Maj Chaudhary, he was felicitated during the ceremony.

On this occasion Lt Gen Saibal Mukherjee, Director General Medical Service (Army) lauded the efforts of the Army Hospital and all others who are associated with these initiatives.
