About ORGAN India


The Organ Receiving & Giving Awareness Network (ORGAN) India was launched in March 2013 as an initiative of the Parashar Foundation, an NGO based in Delhi. The Parashar Foundation was set up in 2005 by the late Shri Ashok Parashar to help the poor and less fortunate by providing funds to various schools, health centers, and other organizations. While their previous work was primarily in the form of donations to various causes, they now have a clear goal – to create widespread awareness of organ donation in India.

Since 2013, the Foundation has focused on creating awareness on Organ Donation under ORGAN (Organ Receiving & Giving Awareness Network) India.
