The nine day religious festival of Navratri is organized for the social cause of organ donation awareness with celebration of cultural value organized by a Medical Association- Borivali Medical Brotherhood (BMB).

The event- 'Dhoom Machale Navratri 2018' – 'I support organ donation' 'I am a real hero', has now become a movement with many Institutes, Companies and common people becoming a part of the drive to educate people on the importance of Organ Donation. NGO's & Associations like Mohan Foundation, Amar Gandhi Foundation, AMC (Association of Medical Consultants) & Malad Medical Association have joined hands with Borivali Medical Brotherhood to educate the people about organ donation.

Dr Nimesh Mehta, Eye Surgeon & Vice President of BMB, said “Do you know that there are thousands of children of age less then 6 years who are in the Organ Recipient waiting list? There are several conditions in which a young child can only be treated by transplanting a heart, liver or kidney. We all want our children to have a smile on their face. And even those children who need a heart or liver can smile, only if more people are educated about the process of organ donation and we, as a society;need to actively promote it & encourage it.”

To encourage more people, BMB has come with a “Privilege Card” for people who pledge to donate their organs. This card offers various benefits at several hospitals, clinics & shops across the suburbs of Mumbai. BMB President Dr Narendra Kumar said “It is our ‘Thank You’ to people who pledge organs.”

This event, which promises to bring a change in the way the Society views organ donation, is being held at Jasmine Banquets, Raghuleela Mall,Poisar, Kandivali West from 10th Oct to 18th Oct 2018, 8pm onwards.
Indeed a unique festival with a difference!!
