Nalco CMD Dr Tapan Kumar Chand inaugurate session of the Dadhichi award ceremony

Bhubaneswar:24/7/17;Organ donation is an act of humanity and sacrifice and the donors give a new lease of life to the unfortunate victims of organ failure.

This was stated by Nalco CMD Dr Tapan Kumar Chand while addressing the inaugural session of the Dadhichi award ceremony organised by the Body & Organ Donation Initiative (BODI) under the aegis of the Lok Sevak Mandal and The Samaja here on Sunday.

He said myths and religious and cultural taboos about organ donation need to be dispelled. He particularly appreciated BODI president Dr Pravas Acharya’s lifelong commitment to save lives and believed that Odisha is set to lead the way for organ donation in the country.

Notably, Dr Chand and his wife Preeti Roy had earlier joined the initiative to donate organs. Making a commitment to “Gift Life”, about 500 donors, who have registered for organ and body donation, were felicitated on the occasion and conferred with the Dadhichi Samman.

Inaugurating the programme, State Finance Minister Sashi Bhusan Behera lauded the organisers for motivating people towards this noble cause. Behera pledged to donate his organs too.

Among others, MP Prasanna Patsani and AIIMS Bhubaneswar Director Prof Geetanjali B also spoke on the occasion. Loksevak Mandal secretary Niranjan Rath presided over the programme.
