Our welfare work is a lifeline for thousands of people and we cannot do it without your help. The Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital facilitates Eyes, Blood and other Organ donation.
Organ and tissue donation and transplant provides a second chance at life for thousands of people each year. By deciding to be a donor, you gift hope ... hope for the thousands of individuals awaiting transplants. Organ donation saves lives, so please donate today, every donation makes a difference.
In India, we have an estimated 4.6 million people with corneal blindness that is curable through corneal transplantation, made possible by eye donation. The sight lost due to opaque cornea can be restored by replacing the opaque cornea with a clear one.
At Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital we strive to bridge the gap between the availability and requirement, through a joint effort with the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation. We have established the PCMC ADITYA JYOTâ€“a foundation that champions the cause of eye donation. Our continuous efforts in encouraging and assisting with eye donations have resulted in more than hundred people having been restored eye sight since the establishment of PCMC ADITYA JYOT in November, 2007.
