The event was flagged off in the morning by Mr SB Singh from the NGO GLODAS and the college Principal and Director along with senior teachers. The GLODAS representative sensitized the students regarding organ donation and motivated them to further inspire others around them to gift this gift of life to others by making a pledge to donate organs. The rally was spearheaded by the counselling cell volunteers who made and distributed informative brochures about Organ Donation.
The community gave a positive response by actively engaging with the students and trying to understand the concept of organ donation.
Earlier, a poster making and slogan writing competition was organized by the Department of Sociology and NSS.
Further, all volunteers were given the task to spread the message of this awareness campaign amidst the community by making these brochures as their profile pictures, streaks, insta-page stories and status.
